I guess i needed to just search.

So i think its Stokes and Ireland , the lion represent sterling?
City mark is chester, england, and the R i am not sure how to figure that out.

Assuming you looked this up in site encyclo.---date codes chart is in upper right (tap to increase)...looks to match R for 1900 (company mark registered in 1890)--Stokes & Ireland Limited.

By the way, it's always helpful if you figure out how to load up your images to the site so these good people can help you. Nice spoon.
