Hi i have a small spoon possibly a tea spoon or christening spoon , the markings are so tiny it is impossible to photograph them i can only see them under a magnifying glass . however the spoon is decorative with some sort of castle towers three in all on the top of the spoon then under this three spiders look like ants to me then below is what looks like rope bridge or similar and then a castle design again . the hall marks are on the basin of the spoon one being the letters in a diamond OS underneath a sun and a star underneath the letters i have no idea of the other mark its in a squire . on the back of the basin of the spoon is inscribed the name Lilly .any ideas . i will try to get a picture on of the spoon but the hall mark is so tiny it wouldn't even show.
