Re: Cape spoon?

If you'd like to find out more about these and other Gibraltar silversmiths, Wynyard Wilkinson wrote an article on the subject in the 2011 Silver Society Journal entitled The Key to Gibraltar.

Re: Help with date mark...

This is a curious set of marks that I have seen on two other objects. The first is a pair of sugar nips/tea tongs of c.1760 form. The second is a bizarre spoon which can be found in this thread: http://www.925-1000.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=48&t=13042&hilit=squirrel I'm no closer to finding ...

Re: Later Georgian knife?

Hi Bill,

You're quite right: the maker's mark could be on the tang. From the shape of the lion passant (and because it's the case with most of these c.1800 fruit knives) we can see that your example was made in Sheffield.

Re: William Welch.

Hi Paul,

The man who made your spoon was William Welch of Exeter.
Tim Kent wrote a good article on this subject called "A little light on the Welches" in The Finial. It can be read here: http://www.bexfield.co.uk/thefinial/pdf/20-01.pdf
