18th century Swiss ladle ?

Postby joho » Sun Jan 13, 2019 8:52 am

Hi. Can anyone help identify this silver and wood pierced ladle? The little research I have done suggest it may be Swiss. It is about 22cm long. It is hallmarked with what is presumably a town mark (a shield type device), and a makers mark WB. Would be grateful for any help! Many thanks.

Hi, there was a Wilhelm Brenner in Lausanne from 1779 to 1804. Born 1750 in Nürnberg, moved 1804 to Geneva. Could be him. Kind regards, Jörg
