Hey, this is my first post... I hope somebody can help me...

I'm from Slovenia and my father have few spoons, which belong to my late grandmother (those were her heritage- only few spoons).
Near by was castle, which was burned in 17 or 18 century.
So he is certain that this spoons are from castle and i can't convince him to otherwise.

I think that the mark represent Joseph Gilbert... or John Gilbert?

And i have no idea how old they are. Anybody knows?

thanks

p.s. He have one more spoon, which looks like the others, but it's bigger and has written: MUNIA90... only this... is this just some old spoon worth nothing?
