Dear Mr Stringer,

I have an two old teaspoons on of which has no markings but it is a mystery to me as to why something would be made without markings, can you help please?

Kind regards,
Louisa

Answer
Hello.

Picture processing by AllExperts is not as good as I would like. I cannot make out all the identifying marks on the backs of the spoons. It does appear that one is sterling and one is silver plate.

One of the marks on the sterling spoon may be an anchor. If so, that could indicate manufacture in Birmingham, England. You might look at the manufacturer marks for Birmingham at this site to see if you can see a match. http://www.925-1000.com/british_marks.html

Sorry I was not able to offer more.

Best wishes,

Jim
