This contribution is a bit away from the subject. The picture presents 5 spoons - 2 dinner spoons from Oslo 1776 and 1798. The last one engraved. Then 3 different tea spoons where the silver smith has engraved 3 different ways to present the "no drop" http://sv1.letmehost.com/sv1/24/thumbs...

Customers expected spoons to look i a certain way. This spoon is from Norway, Christiania 1798 (Oslo). You might expect that the spoon was earlier due to the ornamentation. But mark says different. I would also expect that the spoon was made in two pieces. But it is not. The customer expected to see...

Silver spoons Weilandt

I have these 2 spoons with the mark 12 and WEILANDT. The zig zag line is 4,6cm I think that is a long line for a sample.

Another guardein was added to my collection today. Christian Næboe. Guardein between 1823 and 1827. He was guardein when he was 53 years old. He died 4 years later. So his mark is a little bit rare. I bought 4 spoons with his mark so I also got the 3 towers from 1823. Part of the same lot was 2 for...

You just missed one mark. The walking lion. I know that its common knowledge, but maybe your friend does not know.
The walking lion is british for sterling 925/1000 and called "lion passant"

Ok that a lot af silver smiths.
My interest in silver is primarily before 1900 - and even best before 1850.
But still its fun to discover and become vice.

Sugar sifter - that was the word I was looking for.

Yes the duck is included in the Norwegian marks. Brødrene Mylius
