From previous post on this spoon:
"Have researched as best I could.
As you can see it is Sterling Silver.
Have not been able to read/ identify the "writing" @ the top of the handle's backside.
Where the bowl & handle connect is that a "T" on the backside? If needed I will take a new picture(s).
Approx. 3 1/2" long.
Is this a Tiffany spoon?
Age?
Any input would be greatly appreciated."

    Just in case you aren't checking both of your posts, I put this on the other entry: Great new pictures! This is what I've come up with so far. The hallmarks on your spoon handle, the lion passant facing RIGHT, the anchor and the letter G, along with the word 'sterling' is most likely Gorham. The Gorham hallmark since 1865 is that of a lion facing right, an anchor and the letter "G." Prior to 1865 the Gorham lion faced left, as one would find on British sterling. I haven't found the pattern name yet, but if I do, I'll certainly let you know! And for what it's worth, the letter etched/engraved on the bowl looks like either a "P", "L", or maybe "S". Do any of those letters have significance to you or your family?

    PS: Without a border around each of the hallmarks, this piece would date ot the last quarter of the 19th century.

    Hi, all! I found the pattern. It's Gorham circa 1885, No. 18 C. Rococo. Found a picture.

    miKKo and chinablue. You two are amazing. You're Sherlock Holmes and Charlie Chan rolled into one.

    *LOL* Thank you kindly, Sir! I had just posted this on the OTHER posting of this spoon.
    "Once again, you amaze me miKKo! I think we make a great team, don't you? I love sifting through info with you on items we find! And anyone that does or has done calligraphy as you have, is priceless in deciphering some of these date letters and such. I'll be anxious to see if any of the letters mean anything to Alpha1. (and what in the world did you apologize for, lady!?) See you next time! :-)

    Nice work on an interesting piece of silver!

    Thanks vetraio50! I love playing sleuth and I believe miKKo does too, if I may be so bold as to speak for her.
    *LOL* @ Jimbo I guess that's not a bad pair to be compared to, is it miKKo?

    WoW ! You people are Fantastic!
    Thank You ALL! There is so much to know, & learn.
    I have no idea what a P, L, or S would connect/refer to. Her maiden name began w/ a G. Unless it could be the 1st letter of someones 1st name & they marked it.
    Agfain, Thanks to ALL!

    Love Sherlock Holmes stories and the old Basil Rathbone/Nigle Bruce films! Love the old Charlie Films, too! @ Jimbo - Most apt description of chinablue, I think! : )

    "Ancient ancestor once say, 'Words cannot cook rice' "*, but ancient ancestor not know chinablue!
