Help identifying marks on spoon

Postby wdigges » Tue Aug 20, 2019 6:00 pm

Hi, I was given a set of silver that come with the marks below. Also, any idea what the SPERO on the front means? Thanks!

Your spoons have a London hallmark for the assay year 1812/13 and they are sterling (.925) silver. Is there also a maker's mark?

"SPERO" is Latin for "I hope" and is the motto of the original owner's family, whose armorial appears below it. You may be able to narrow down the identity of the owner by searching through Fairbairn's Crests, several editions of which are available online.
