Please help identify maker of this French spoon

Postby cgonzalez100 » Fri Oct 05, 2018 3:05 pm

I would greatly appreciate your help in identifying the silversmith of this lovely little French spoon. The symbols are two crescents with a crown. I am struggling to see clearly the maker's initials, it could be GE, GB, or perhaps CB, or maybe CE? I have searched for either combination, but have not found a silversmith with the same set of symbols. The spoon is marked with the Minerva second title for 800 parts silver.
