Just a hint: the symbol under Minerva’s chin will tell you the province of manufacture. Once you know where your spoon was made, it will be easier to do research about the maker.
Good luck in your search!

Thank you JayT. I just took two more photos of Minerva. Are they helpful? Can you lead me further?

This is the mark of Albert Joseph Ernest Callé (17 Oct 1853 – after 1926) and his son, André Callé (12 Apr 1884-24 Oct 1949) of Amiens, Somme. They were manufacturers of high-quality flatware from around 1882 to at least 1957. I was not able to find a death record for the elder Callé, but it was after 1926, when he and his son are both still listed in the Amiens census at their long-time address of 7 rue Sire Firmin Leroux.
