Re: Demitassse Spoons with marks too small to ID.

With the information in the two responses to my post, I have confirmed that the spoons are Dutch 835 silver in the Twisted Hilt-Open Crown pattern by H. Hooijkaas/VKB.

Re: Demitassse Spoons with marks too small to ID.

Demitassse Spoons with marks too small to ID.

I have 8 silver plate demitasse spoons that I cannot identify. The two maker marks are too small to make out any detail using a loupe and I have compared their shape with all on the website and found no match. Can anyone help? https://i.postimg.cc/4Y23xs1t/P1080226.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/8jtpZN93/...

I had looked twice at the Manchester logo; but discarded it. But your post sent me to Replacements to at least check it out.

Thanks for your effort and tip!
