Scottish Provincial Teaspoon?

Postby bstaunto » Fri Oct 27, 2017 5:47 am

Hey team,

Picked up this little Scottish Fiddle Pattern Teaspoon. The bowl is a little worn, but the mark is in great condition.

I don't have my copy of Turner's handy, but couldn't remember seeing this mark. IM with a figure in between.

Any identification? Thoughts?

Cheers,

Ben

Hi Ben,

Great mark! But I do not find it in either of Richard Turner's books.

Legend Trev!

And he was working around 1750s?

It's a great maker's mark.

Thanks,

Ben
