Jasper Kelly?? Another Maker not 100% sure of

Postby dartsil » Sun Apr 17, 2011 10:10 am

Interesting spoon which measures 172mm in length.

The spoon is only marked with {IK} and no other marks. The closest match I have found is that of Jasper Kelly (1447 Grimwades) but he is entered as a gold worker.

Can anyone shine some light on maker and purpose of spoon?

This could well be the work of John Keith of Banff.

Hi Trev, again I had attributed to John Keith but again thought I would question my initial thoughts as again refering to Turners book theres no mention of just {IK} as one of his marks.
Any idea to the purpose of this spoon?.. Like the Erskine of Aberdeen spoon I thought I would post here to see if anyone else hit upon the Scottish Provincial angle.

Further research Trev,

I am now pretty confident it is a masking spoon and 99% sure it will be by John Keith.

Now thats not a bad turn up for the books seen as I managed to get it for £8
