Another spoon !

Another dessert spoon with an enscription of Duchess Silver ReGd 3895.S, also some other lettering which is not very clear, maybe B&C (something)&S. Does anyone have any ideas?

This looks like another base metal alloy. Duchess was a trade mark of Bird & Blake of Sheffield. I’m not sure how this squares with B&Co; maybe Bird & Blake were previously either Bird & Co or Blake & Co.
