Butter Knife?

Can anyone suggest a use for this item, or even where it's from? Similar to a butter knife, but an odd shape. 22cm long.

c.1820 Kings Pattern Teaspoons, EP

Does anyone recognise the mark on these odd single-struck Kings pattern teaspoons? I'm not certain that they're American, but the engraving suggests it. Miles http://i64.photobucket.com/albums/h200/granmaa/15_zpsbec3bb2b.jpg http://i64.photobucket.com/albums/h200/granmaa/16_zpsf86d5027.jpg

Re: Silver bowl, need help to id.

The map is of Guernsey, where Russell works. His maker's mark is also in that shape.
I think the date letter P is for 1989.

Venetian Fork, c.1700

This fork is in the same style as the Venetian spoon I posted last week. Does anyone recognise any of the initial marks? FP and FC?

Thank you for that.
Do you know the working dates for Anzolo Castelli?

Venetian Spoon, 18th Century

I believe this spoon to be Venetian, early 18th century, with the angel mark. Does anyone recognise the makers' marks. The marks on the bowl seem to different to the one on the handle.

Re: Robert Jones Teaspoon?

Most definitely Richard Jenkins, and c.1800. As well as a silversmith, he was Mayor of Exeter in 1787 and 1800.

Norwegian Fish Tongs

Does anyone recognise the marks on what I presume to be a pair of Norwegian sardine tongs?

Re: Request help identifying hallmark, possibly Thomas Watso

Welcome to the forum.

You're quite right. The maker's mark is that of Thomas Watson, and this sugar bowl was made c.1800. The inscription was probably made by a shop owner sometime in the 20th century.

Middle East Bowl with unknown script

A late 19th century bowl with embossed and chased figures. I think the clue to working out where this is from lies in the script, but I don't recognise it. http://i64.photobucket.com/albums/h200/granmaa/25_zps1ca794d7.jpg http://i64.photobucket.com/albums/h200/granmaa/26_zpse80d1453.jpg http://i64.p...

South East Asian Colonial Salt Cellar? c.1820

A curious salt cellar in Neo-Classical style. The peculiar script of the maker's mark makes me think it migth be South East Asian, but I don't have much idea. Miles http://i64.photobucket.com/albums/h200/granmaa/23_zpsd8f6d793.jpg http://i64.photobucket.com/albums/h200/granmaa/24_zps1c72d9f8.jpg

c.1840 Teaspoon, SR Mark

A bog-standard teaspoon, probably British-colonial with a mark I've never seen before. The mark is from one punch. Anyone recognise it? Miles http://i64.photobucket.com/albums/h200/granmaa/29_zps482fdc4c.jpg http://i64.photobucket.com/albums/h200/granmaa/2_zpsf15a7c52.jpg

Does anyone know the maker on this c.1800 French beaker? Also, I have no idea what the other mark is.
