Looks to be a Mid 19th Century Georgian Spoon but who was WW

Post by RVsaid on September 14th 2018, 8:32 am

Hi

Sorry it's a bit earlier but I wondered if anyone here was up on their silversmith marks. Looks to be WW or MM, year code d and a George Duty mark.

Thanks

Without a city assay office mark this is awkward.

The date letter seems to be a match for Sheffield 1827,
but the shape of the lion mark looks like Birmingham or London.

Hi looks like possibly William Webb 1819 but these marks are tricky lots look identical but almost positive it is William Webb

Unfortunately, the WW is nothing like William Webb
http://www.silvermakersmarks.co.uk/Makers/London-WT-WZ.html#WW

I have checked Exeter also, there is no match on Phil's site to the WW.

There is the lost London register around this time period and the mark for the maker could be one of those and unknown.

Try posting on http://www.925-1000.com/forum/index.php

It will get confirmation if anything if it is from the lost London register or not.

Ah a duty dodger, I have had a few George Smith spoons before that were duty dodgers (simply marked GS four times).

I initially thought the marks were pseudo, but I know the peeps on 925 forum are very knowledgeable and would be able to help.

Great find!

Cheers man, a good shout about the 925 site. Do you think it's worth polishing or leaving it with the patina?

More than welcome, I am glad they could help, I saw the discussion about the spoon.

In regards to polishing or not, it depends on what you are planning to do with it, if you decide to keep it and use it, then polish it.

If you plan to sell it on, I tend to clean the silver I sell, not all buyers want to get their hands dirty with silver polish etc.

Good find and good luck :)
