Unknown Crest. Masonic or Religious?

Postby dartsil » Sat Feb 12, 2011 10:47 am

Silver dessert spoon hallmarked London 1807..Nothing at all out of the ordinary but for the symbol on the terminal.

I wonder if anyone recognises this symbol, My initial thoughts are it may be Masonic or religious ?

I have seen a good many spoons with this crest, mostly early 19th century fiddle pattern, and have an example on an 1819 table spoon that is stamped No 18 on the back, implying that it came from a large set. I have it down as a Harvey family crest (but am no expert in heraldry). On the examples I have seen the crest seems to have been applied rather than struck in a private die.

Many Thanks yet again Trev, That confirms what another person on board suggested.
