1752 Irish Spoon?

Postby Aguest » Sun Oct 08, 2017 5:27 am

I think I figured out this one is from Ireland, but the problem is the "Star L" hallmark might be John Laughlin Sr., but there are others with the same initials so it might not be John Laughlin Sr., so I have a few comparison pics too....

And Here Are Some Comparison Pics For The Date Mark Of 1752 And A Better Maker's Mark For John Laughlin, Sr. (note the similar "L" construction)

I think it would be helpful if you could post sharper well lit images for your spoon ( as well as the entire spoon)on a plain background as per the other examples you posted.

Trying these pics. We are dealing with a spoon which has been "Victorian-ized" into a Berry Spoon, so it looks like a Berry Spoon. The one interesting detail is that the end of the spoon is upturned, almost at a 90 degree angle, but I am not sure if this is original or perhaps done 100 years later...

Difficult to get a pic of the Maker's Mark, but it looks like I can see a "STAR" symbol followed by an "L" symbol....perhaps...?

[Would There Be Another Option For This Date Letter And Shield Symbol Other Than Dublin Ireland 1752? I Can Find No Other Possible Candidate.]
