Amsterdam Caddy Spoon?

Postby joho » Wed Jul 11, 2018 7:44 am

Can anyone help to identify this caddy spoon please. It looks like Amsterdam around 1805 to me.... but the marks don't seem quite right. Many thanks. John.

In 1795 The Dutch Republic or the Republic of the Seven United Netherlands (The Low Countries) and The Austrian Netherlands, the Prince Bishopric of Liege, Luxemburg and the present Limburg province are conquered and occupied by the French armies and are annexed by the French Republic.
In 1795 Proclamation of the Batavian Republic 1795-1806, a French satellite state and the hallmarks of the French Republic (1795-1804) were introduced. In 1806 the self crowned emperor Napoleon Bonaparte forces the Batavian Republic to accept his brother Louis as King of Holland, Kingdom of Holland 1806-1810.
Hallmarks of the Kingdom of Holland introduced 1807-1812

Hi John, the marks are good. The maker's mark is CDW. in a rectangle shield for; C. de Wit or Christiaan de Wit born in 1776 died 1847, registered in Amsterdam 1798-1822, small work, known maker of teaspoons. Assay Office mark Amsterdam for light weighted silver, to prevent fraudulent practices not in a normal oval shield. Year letter script d used 1811 and 1812, Ɪ0 for 10 Penningen or 833.33 fineness.
