I think it could be just a symbol of Poseidon/Neptunus and purely decorative. The similar symbol can be found in classical Greek imagery and it's featured for example in coins (both ancient and modern).

Thanks again,

I think it's the crest of an institution of fairly long standing as I have now seen an identical crest, also on a silver skewer, dated 1850.

Thanks Trev,

Appears this one might be a bit trickier than I had at first thought.

Colin
