I just love these four beautiful little silver spoons, not sure whether they are Chinese or Japanese and I have no idea how old they are, but! I am guessing possibly 'Art Nouveau' with their design. They look to be hand made as each one is slightly different. If anyone could tell me the mark , I have looked on the usual silver sites but I can't find anything that looks like this mark. Would love some help if any one can. Many thanks!

    Hi inky, I do not think it is Japan they used jungin mark 1868-1912. (see my Japanese silver military cup) I do not think China, but maybe Korea, just a thought! toracat

    If they are Japanese they would be before 1868, The older characters she can not read. My Japanese cup has a name she can not read also and it is Jungin, I have it posted. She thought they were really beautiful, she really loved the bamboo stems and dragonflies. I am jealous! toracat
