Scottish provincial? WN anchor mark

Postby mk209 » Mon Jan 21, 2019 3:08 am

I have 3 teaspoons of what looks like Scottish origin, celtic point and marked only with WN and an anchor mark. Cannot find the silversmith or any info on these, help would be great, thanks.

Just a refence note...some old threads list three areas in Scotland associated with anchor or fouled anchor marks. Also, some earlier Scottish makers apparently relocated to India.

Just an update to these spoons, they were originally part of a set of 6 teaspoons bought from a family who owned them, 3 were marked like this and 3 were marked for Edinburgh. Really good to hear where they came from but really wish the set had stayed together for evidence.

I really feel these are Scottish and the way they are made bears a lot of similarities with a few other Paisley makers.

Hi Matt,

Is it possible to replace the images?
