Banff?

Postby paulh » Sun Jan 02, 2022 8:37 am

This is the mark on an Old English pattern tea spoon. It is difficult to see from the pictures, but there is a rubbed mark on the left which I can just make out to be a capital “B”. There is an “H” then a maker’s mark and then what appears to be an “R”.

The maker’s mark seems to be “M• ?”. I have seen similar marks attributed to Banff makers, but I cannot find any mark which corresponds to this one in any references of Scottish Provincial marks.

I am sorry that the pictures are not clearer. I have tried to enhance them as much as possible.

Hi Paul,

Maybe John McQueen of Banff?

Trev.

Hello Trev,

That was the only person who came close, but I can't find an exact match. It may be that the mark is so distorted that what I am seeing as a pellet after the "M" is the bottom of the "c".

Happy New Year.

Paul.
