could these be Joseph Hicks

Hi All

Have this set of bright cut teaspoons with shell bowls. The lion passant looks like it could be Exeter and hoping JH is for Joseph Hicks. Presume late C18, but wondering if anyone could tell anything from the duty mark. Also unusually, these have "fiddle" shoulders.

Many thanks Frank
