Help identifying marks please

I’m new here and looking for help on marks on a large silver spoon I have, photographing silver is indeed difficult but I have had a go. Cant make out the makers name but the other hallmarks are lion, leopards head and what looks like a number 1?
The mark I am really interested in however is the one at the top of the handle, looks quite runic maybe masonic? Any help would be appreciated.

And the other hallmark

The mark on the top of the handle is a letter “L”, presumably a family’s initial. The hallmark is a London mark; what you identified as a number 1 is a letter “l”, the date code for 1906. Your picture is too blurred to make out and identify the maker’s mark.

Thanks for that information, I can’t even see the makers name with a magnifying glass! I think it might be: the two letters on the top could be C or G W with T or F CW underneath does that mean anything to anyone and ultimately is it worth keeping?

Actually I think I have solved it, I think it is a JW with FCW underneath which is James Wakely and Frank Clark Wheeler, I believe the mark is from 1900 so 1906 fits.

Thanks everyone!
