18th Century Scandinavian Ball Top Spoon

Someone once posted a spoon with the same makers mark in here many moons ago but I don't think it was positively identified. This spoon is pretty rough but I believe it is early 18th century but it could be earlier

Sitting indoors in korona quarantine is a bit boring but opens possibilities to browse unanswered old threads. Guess what legrandmogol, I found the man. IMS is Jacob Michelsen Steen in Bergen in Norway. He became master 1722 and was alderman in the guild 1735-1737. He died 26.3.1740. His widow Elisabeth Danielsdatter Smit continued with the workshop.
