Help to Identify Marks on Spoon


Can someone help identify the marks on the attached spoon.


Any chance of a better picture of the marks? Having blown up part of your image to 4x size I think it’s going to be electroplate:

Thanks - I have taken another pic should be a a bit clearer now.
The initials say JG

I believe that this is an electroplate mark of John Gilbert & Co (later John Gilbert & Sons, then John Gilbert & Co Ltd) of Birmingham and London. The spoon probably dates from c1890.
