    Found this spoon at a flea market. It's got the English lion, a letter C, and a King George mark. Looks like it could be 1820's-1840's. Measures about 5in long. I just don't know where it was made and by who.

      After comparing all the date marks from England it seems it matches to Birmingham, with the date mark being from 1800. Old spoon.

      Your assumption sounds correct (1800). Just to mention this fact: Assay office (town) mark was deliberately omitted on cutlery in many cases to prevent ``duty dodging``. Full set of marks on a spoon could have been transposed on much heavier item and if well done difficult to disclose solder seam. Duty paid for a spoon and marks transposed to a tea pot. Therefore a tea pot always had full set of marks.
