Liverpool Spoons?

Postby techsol » Wed Apr 29, 2015 8:38 am

Hi,

I found these spoons at auction described as Scottish Provincial. Could they be from Liverpool, as the marks don't correspond with any Scottish Provincial that I am aware of?

Hi Martin,

Can you post an image of the marks on the other spoon?

Hi Trev,

The images were provided by the auctioneer, I do not have the spoons. I came across them when checking through the auctioneers sale results for a number of Scottish Provincial items and was intrigued as to the origin of that particular lot.

Hi Martin,

The 'WF' is a good match for the mark of William Ferguson of Elgin. What is the mystery, is what is his mark overstamping? Perhaps the word 'SILVER'?

Hi Trev,

That would make sense, in which case the origin of the spoons could be very difficult to determine.
