London importer maker mark ID please

Postby user701 » Wed May 03, 2017 12:18 pm

I have a German .930 silver spoon, German maker Richard Garten.

I have looked for the import mark on here, Phil's site and another site, but I have not been able to find it.

The date of the spoon is 1890.

Showing both sets of marks, the German marks for reference.

Hi User,

That's the mark of William Oppenheim.
