The photo is a bit out of focus but the letters stand for the maker's initials,the anchor is the assay town of Birmingham UK,the lion indicates sterling standard which is 925/1000 silver purity. the last one on the right which is the date letter is quite out of focus so I can't give you the date this spoon was hallmarked. The handle seems to be of a seal finial type.
