I have got an old silver spoon which have been within my family for some generations. Before my father died he told me what he ment about its origin, - mainly based on the initials on it.
is that it was owned by a quite wealthy cousin of my great grandfather who died in 1866. She was born in Copenhagen
, but lived some years in London
before moving to Moscow
in 1843. She also spent some time in Germany
, the Netherlands
and perhaps other European countries as well.
I hope these four silver marks and the great knowledge of people in this forum will be sufficient to approach the origin of this spoon.
If the marks cannot be identified, I would appreciate any comments on what kind of marks we see. I suppose the letter mark is the maker's mark, but which mark is the city mark and so on?
