Finnish Spoon with W5 Date??

Postby RubyFish » Wed Jun 24, 2020 4:14 pm

Trying to learn more about these markings.

What date is W5 if the year marks do not include the letter W?

Also, who is the maker JHP?

Thanks for taking the time to read this post and help me out.

The year is 1926. Sometimes W is used instead of V. The maker JHP is Juho Hesekiel Pekuri active in the town of Oulu 1884-1943. The Jugend (Modern Style) pattern is a variation of a still today popular pattern called "Suomi" originated from the turn of the century.
