Re: Makers mark on Spoons

I am probably way wrong, but my first thoughts on seeing the marks, they look similar to German Hanau pseudo marks.

Thanks, Trev, looking at John James Whiting's mark, I agree, it certainly looks the same.

Thomas Wallis or not Thomas Wallis? Help needed please

I am not 100% if the mark on this spoon is for Thomas Wallis or not. It hallmarked for London 1836.
Thanks in advance.
