"Two-tower" mark was used in Denmark for silver plated items.

The mark on top is the maker`s mark København's Skefabrik in Amager (an island, part of Copenhagen.) It depicts Absalom of Lund (1128-1201), a Danish archbishop.

Thank you everyone, I appreciate the feedback so quickly. I’ve spend many many hours looking for these marks so I could identify them. Now I can rest!

Just adding a nice trail of nested links leading back to 2007 entries on silverplate makers (photo losses, but text is useful): viewtopic.php?f=18&t=41857&p=117742&hilit=absalom&sid=22dd1121e10d20b7928ccefa589c1c1e#p117742

The additional links were very helpful and interesting. Thank you for adding them! We think this spoon, and another matching smaller tea spoon, were my husband’s grandmother’s who came to USA from Scotland about 1935 (his own mother was only 7 then). The engraved initials match hers. Thanks again!
