I found this set today for a couple of dollars. I was able to quickly recognize that one of the spoons stuck out like a sore thumb. After a bit of research I find that the top spoon in the first photo is German silver. The rest I think are plated, have not had any luck IDing those.
The real silver spoon (in the third photo) is made by Franz Bahner of Dusseldorf , and this mark was used from 1917 to 1962. The mark 800 indicates the purity.
THe other 5 spoons are quite attractive, but I am sure they are plated. They are marked either 90, or 100 with the letter B and a train (see last photo). If anyone can help ID the silverplated spoons I would appreciate it. I think the "B" is the city mark. A little confusing. Thanks!
