unknown object; chester; ? date; what is it?

Hi Guys Can any one help identify this object for me. I thought it was a match strike. Filled it with Swan Vestas and they wouldn't strike, just rubbed of on the pottery. Has marks on bottom and Chester Hall Mark, which I can't quite identify. All the cartouches appear squares. Appreciated. Gary htt...

Georg Jensen Caddy Spoon

Hi guys I picked up this caddy spoon at a car boot sale this weekend. I think its Georg Jensen, but I have looked at an awful lot of images and I can't find this spoon. I wonder if anyone can identify the pattern and whether it is Georg Jensen. Appreciated as always. Gary https://i.postimg.cc/d0c72v...

Re: Can anyone help, very large silver spoon

Thanks guys; when I acid tested it, I made quite a deep scratch.
It looks very well made. I see it was put in the Scandinavian Section. I was hoping someone may say 'ah, I recognise that'; fingers crossed.
