Norwegian Spoons

Postby pickledonion » Sun Feb 16, 2020 1:05 pm

I have set of silver spoons which I believe are from Norway and are late 19th century. Markings are shown as ALF 830S. Can anybody let me now who "ALF" refers to please?

It’s not listed in Per Østby’s book on Norwegian marks but there is an A.F Anthonius Frisch - Oslo 1856-1916. His mark is described as ‘A.Frisch’ though. I have seen Norwegian makers use different variations of initials and name.

Example: E.M.B and E.Bjørthseth
