Hi All. Can anyone shed any light on this 18th century teaspoon. Its appearance dates it to 1720's or 1730's. It is bottom marked with maker's mark IG with a pellet between and a lion passant facing right (not very well struck, but discernable), in a straight-sided rectangular punch. My initial thoughts were that it was from Newcastle, but I am unable to find a Newcastle maker's mark matching IG. Can anyone help!!! Many thanks. John
This spoon (or one the same) is now with me. It feels British with a typical marriage triangle of initials engraved on the back. Although it’s in a typical 1730’s style it’s very well defined so maybe of a later period? I’ve searched Colonial but had no luck so far.
