I hope this is the correct forum to post.
I have a caddy spoon marked RF with no date mark. Having read Miles's excellent article http://www.925-1000.com/a_exeterlions.html
, I think it may be Exeter.
My questions are:
Is it Exeter?
If so, is it by Richard Ferris?
Is the duty mark triple-cuspid and if so is that significant?
I've dated it, according to Jackson's Hallmarks to between 1805 - 1817.
But with Miles's article this could be narrowed to 1810 as date marks started appearing on spoons then.
The bowl is repaired at the side. (admin edit - see Posting Requirements ) [img=http://img203.imagevenue.com/loc548/th_512968798_Caddy2Hallmark_122_548lo.jpg] [img=http://img216.imagevenue.com/loc494/th_512970885_Caddy2_122_494lo.JPG]
Apologies for all the questions, but I'd like to learn as I've never had Exeter silver before - if indeed it is.
