Large delicate spoon

Postby Skandi » Mon Apr 05, 2021 4:39 pm

My family, as well as all my inherited silverware, is from Sweden and Norway. This piece is my only unidentifiable standout. It measures 8.5 inches in length and is hammered so thin that I would only chance sipping broth from it. Can anyone decipher the hallmarks?

Looks like Norway to my eyes. ::: The hallmark with the cursive initials seems to be the maker's mark. ::::

The mark to the right is Christiania's town mark (Oslo) in Norway. The maker's mark is CM and that is a Swede; Carl Andreas Mordt/Morth from Halmstad/SE, born 1767. He arrived to Christiania in 1794 and became master there 28.6.1796. He was alderman in "Gullsmedslauget i Christiania" (the guild) 1799-1802 and 1805-1808. He died 7.12.1824. Your spoon is made 1818 (the mark is upside-down) The small mark is the zodiac mark, but unfortunately a bad punch.
