Trying to ID silver spoon

I think the silver marks are Glasgow, but not sure. Date letter K would indicate 1829 but the duty mark looks like George III (1786-1821).
Not sure now if it is Glasgow, any help appreciated.

Cheers.

Hi,
I think it`s Thomas Wilkes Barker, London, 1805.
Date letter K of this form does not match any other assay office as far as I can tell.
Regards

Thanks AG2012, that makes sense and ties in with George III.

Yes mate, found in the ground and I am not cleaning, this one is being returned to the land owner.
