Where is this spoon from.

Postby juantotree » Mon Jul 06, 2020 7:27 am

Hi

I have this teaspoon that I originally thought was an example from Scottish maker Rettie & Son, but I have been unable to track down these particular marks. Has anybody got any ideas on the spoon's origin?

Many Thanks
Martin

Hi Martin,

The 'R & S' mark matches one to be found with the 'pot of lillies' mark struck three times. So presumably this is a Dundee, rather than Aberdeen, maker.

Here's the brother:

Thanks Trev, have you any indication on the maker? I know Turner attributes an Aberdeen and an Elgin mark to Rettie & Son, I wonder if the same maker had a Dundee mark.

Another variation of the marks, this time on a Celtic point teaspoon.
