Dutch spoon?

I hope someone, possible Oel, can help me with this spoon. It appears to be of an early Dutch style, but I have no records of any marks which might help to identify it. It is 19.8cm in length and weighs 60g.

Thanks.

Paul.

I think if you go to the Hanau Germany section of the world marks on this site you will see that your spoon is a Hanau copy.
The third mark is the only one I actually saw, but the other two are typical for Hanau.

Hi Paul, Maurice is right about Hanau, check out Karl Kurz.

Thank you gentlemen. Another mystery solved! I really don't know much about Hanau silver, but find the subject quite intriguing. Do you know of a good book about it?

Thanks again,

Paul.

I don't know of a book, you could find plenty of discussions by searching on this site under Hanau.
Also this site has a two part article on the subject. I vaguely remember some articles in Silver Magazine.
