Looking for spoon origin

Hi Can anyone help me in identifying this table spoon? It is struck three times with a makers mark of EO, the middle one being quite worn and at an angle to the other two. Many Thanks Martin https://www.925-1000.com/pics/Ximg.jpg https://www.925-1000.com/pics/Ximg.jpg

Origin of meat skewer?

Hi I am trying to identify the origins of this meat skewer, marked only once with a makers mark IC. To me it has an Irish feel about it but I may be completely wrong, does anybody have any ideas please? Many Thanks Martin https://www.925-1000.com/pics/Ximg.jpg https://www.925-1000.com/pics/Ximg.jpg

Spoon, probably Paisley

Hi This celtic point teaspoon is struck with an anchor and the makers mark either side. I am thinking it is probably Paisley in origin, but would welcome the thoughts of others on this and on who the maker is. Many Thanks Martin https://www.925-1000.com/pics/Ximg.jpg https://www.925-1000.com/pics/Xi...

Thomas & William Chawner?

Hi I am assuming this is a mis-struck Thomas & William Chawner makers mark, The cross shape of the punch however looks a bit different to those I have seen before, which have been the same as the one displayed on Phil's site. Any thoughts appreciated. Many Thanks Martin https://www.925-1000.com/...

Re: What is it used for and period

Hi

Seems a bit long to be used as an amputee fork/knife. Maybe it was designed as a serving piece.

Re: Snuff / chewing tobacco container

Hi

Would the pierced/filigree work not preclude this from containing snuff or tobacco, due to spillage and drying out?

Could it be for holding pot pourri, what are the measurements?

Re: Birmingham hallmark, but reversed Victoria duty stamp

Hi,

I think you will find that that mark is the optional coronation mark for Queen Elizabeth II. Difficult to make out the date mark as your images aree out of focus.

Forget it everyone, I think it's a sheffield plate mark for John Gilbert.

Hi

I am sure I have seen these marks before, probably on this site, but I can't for the life of me recall what they are. Can anybody put me out of my misery?

Re: What was this ladle used for?

Hi AG2012

Thank you for the observation, it is not something I am familiar with. Other than pattens, chalices and pyx boxes, I have not handled any other ecclesiastical silver.
