Help me please to read the hallmark (crowned lion and the date letter Q)

Postby Elena Russ » Mon Aug 06, 2018 6:45 am

I have ancient spoon and I would like to know detailed information about it.
Looking at the mark with the crowned lion and the date letter Q, I can suppose
that this item is from England, but I doubt it.

Thank you in advance for your help.
