Re: Coin silver small spoon

That's a tough one. My guess is that it might be continental based on the style of the drop and it's overall form. It looks foreign -- or foreign influenced -- based on what I have come across in the past. French /German maybe? Just a guess.

Re: Coin Silver Spoon JTD

Someone is selling a spoon with what looks to be a similar mark and says theirs is probably made by John T. Dolan, c.1830. I can't find him in my limited reference books.

Re: Help with mark - I Cook

also ... would the fact that the mark is placed up near the end of the handle mean anything?? -- more likely point to a certain country vs. rule others out?

Re: Help with mark - I Cook

would anyone have an idea of what country this might be from based on it's style? with such a clear and bold mark it seems unusual that this would not be mentioned anywhere... tks

Re: Nova Scotia Pseudos for "GB" or "GR" ??

There was a Gustave La Baume working in Halifax, NS in 1838 - listed as a jeweler/silversmith... no mark shown.

I wish there was a better - updated -- book on Canadian Silver other than Langdon's. Does anyone know of another one?
