Hello,

I have two silver spoons and I'm having trouble identiying the hallmarks. I originally thought they were from Birmingham from the anchor mark but recently read that the anchor on it's side could be a Paisley mark. This would make sense as my family is from Paisley.
Can anyone help?

No, not Paisley. This is a Birmingham mark - the dates are 1897 (x) and 1899 (z) and the maker is Joseph Gloster. The Birmingham hallmark cycle for 1875 to 1899 normally had the anchor on its side.
