    Hello friends, I have to admit defeat on this little spoons marks and reach out to more knowledgeable minds for help if possible.
    The man on horse looks to be wearing a large hat (Sombrero or Stestson perhaps?) and it's this mark causing me consternation.
    At first I thought America, and Mexico too, but then after much image searching etc it lead me towards South Africa, and then away towards Lithuania (man on horse was facing left not right) and then it seemed nothing.
    Would anyone have any ideas on this lovely little spoon's origins?
    The 'silver' mark seems to be self explanatory, but quite possibly this isn't the case.
    Thanks for your time.
    Ben

      I feel for you because I totally understand, ugh! It's that old saying, the more you see, the less you know??? Is that how it goes?

      I have a sterling silver napkin ring with the exact same mark and I'm yet to find out its origin. Mine also has a 'G', an unidentifiable mark and 'STG' stamped on it. When I first found it I thought the G might indicate that it was Gorham and they did do little pictures as date marks for a while but no horse that I can see.
