Hi There
I have a silver plated spoon which I know little about. My Mum thinks it could have belonged to her grandparents. It is marked with a canon and the words `Defiance'. Does
this mean anything to anyone?!
Thanks for your help Very Happy

Sounds like a silverplate mark used by Brookes & Crookes, Atlantic Works, St. Philip's Road, Sheffield, England.
They entered their first sterling mark at Sheffield in November of 1864.
Don't know how long they were in business.
