The closest I could come is Richard Marsters of Halifax, Nova Scotia. Can you post a clear and larger pic of the mark?

Thank you very much for your efforts in identifying this mark. Here are a couple more examples of the mark. Hopefully they are useful.

Tough one. The shape of the cartouche is the key imho... The first two letters look to me like Ma or Mc or maybe Mo. Might it be continental?

I don't really have a good notion, but Masler comes to mind.

As you say the shape of the cartouche is the key, so now I'm leaning heavily towards Masters as the makers name on this spoon. There is just the slightest indentation on the righthand side of the cross for the t and there is a light cross for the t. The mentioned indentation is barely visible in the image and the cross not at all.
