4 Norwegian spoons
4 Norwegian spoons  
We have several spoons with varying bright cut patterns.  They are all stamped with the 830S silver marks, but nearly all are also stamped with different names.  I have not been able to locate any information on these names as makers.  Can you tell me what these names might be?  In the picture included, the names are: JB Andersen; A Westerbom; N Klemetsen; and O Simonsen.

Answer
Hi, Nancy.

I've not had much luck with developing answers. I found a retailer in Norway by the name of Klemetsen. It was once common for retailers to place their names on pieces actually manufactured by others. I do not know if that is the case here.

I found a Westerbom listed as a German companmy. Again, I could not verify that this is accurate. The others were a loss.

Consider posting your question on the forum at www.925-1000.com. Maybo someone else will recognize the brands.

Best wises,
