Marks on a spoon.

Postby paulh » Mon May 05, 2014 12:42 pm

I hope someone can help me with these French marks. They are on a rather nice little parcel gilt spoon. The maker’s mark seem to be ‘EC’ or ‘EG’ with what looks like a bird between the letters.

Thank you.

Paul.

Hi Paul!
Perhars this is Emile Chaponnet. His mark was "a capon".
Best regards. Alex.

Thanks Alex. That is spot on. French silver is a great gap in my knowledge, but if we all know something about something, then someone will have the answer!

Regards

Paul.
