These are three matching bright cut spoons, which I thought were Channel Islands. One spoon is marked differently to the other two. The odd one having a bird with a fish in its beak , with a capital ‘D’ in a shield and an indistinguishable mark. The other two have ‘PD’ in a trefoil about a 5 point star and yet another indistinguishable mark. All three spoons have an incuse engraved I*B and are all identical in the pattern.
I cannot find any trace of these marks in the Channel Islands, as I thought I might, so I am now searching further afield. They all seem to have the look and style of spoons with origins not too far from England, but so far any similar marks which I can find put them in places which don’t seem quite right.
Any suggestions welcome.
