Hi,

It has to be Peter Lambert. Lambert worked in several towns, and I'm not sure what the mark on the right represents, perhaps a 'Pot of Lillies' from his Dundee period, but it does not match the examples that I've seen. How do you read it?

Hi Trev,

This is what I have found online.

It appears to be the most similar set of marks to the marks on the spoon.

Thanks
Lee

Hi Lee,

Lambert was known, as you've shown, to use the 'Rose' mark on his Montrose period items. I think more likely your spoon is from another town.

Nice item with great marks!
