Maker Identification on Sterling spoon

Postby user701 » Wed May 03, 2017 12:21 pm

Might be a long shot this one, I have been through the pictorial American marks, but not confident enough to find who may have made this spoon. Showing the marks present, the handle and spoon bowl, in case that helps with the identification.

Any help would be appreciated.

::: looks like a poorly struck "International Sterling" company hallmark, it should be a knight in profile with an "S" on the chest :::

Simpson, Hall, Miller & Co./International Silver 'Warwick' pattern, introduced in 1898 - looks like a sugar shell...

Thanks Cheryl, the spoon is on the big size, 8½" (21.5cm) total length, the spoon bowl is 3½" (8.9cm) in length and a maximum width of 6cm.

At that size, would more likely be a berry spoon...

Please pardon me, but I just joined here and have a couple of hundred Sterling items I am trying to document. I cannot figure out how to create my own new post. I too have a spoon I cannot identify. Thanks.
