Re: Looking for the origins of this spoon.

Hi Martin,

Well, it must be the Cape, and I presume Lawrence Twentyman, but I've never seen his mark with that typical style of Cape marking before, his mark is usually found with pseudos.

Hopefully someone else can tell us more.

Hello Gentlemen,

Welz, rather appropriately, lists 20 marks for Lawrence Twentyman, one of which is the mark on your piece.
