Hello Friends

I have a spoon. I understand it's Danish, but which city and maker?

Thank you in advance for your help.

Sorry, but you are mistaking. Your spoon is not Danish. It is from Bergen in Norway. The marks from right. The town mark for Bergen, "P" is the assaying mark for the guardein (assayer) Mathias Pettersen 1790-1812. 07 is the year mark for 1807, The next mark is the maker's mark for Peter Michael Blytt/Blydt b. 1763 and d. 1836. His working period was 1790-1836 in Bergen of course. The next mark is the zodiac mark for cancer. It tells us that the spoon is made between 21.6-22.7 1807. Tell me if you want to know more about the maker.
