I was very pleased to find these this morning, mixed up in a tin of silver plated spoons. I saw the silver mark just above the bowl (Dutch sword mark for 1814-1905), something numerous employees missed entirely. (yay!) The design is hand etched, as there is a variance between each spoon. I haven't the faintest idea who the silversmith is as the marks are badly rubbed, so must try and do more investigating. I did find a listing by McNally Company Antiques of a mid-18th Century caddy spoon which is almost identical in design to mine, the exception being it's clear hallmarks. I'll post the link in the Comments.
Thanks for stopping by for a look-see!
