Identification of spoon hallmarks?

I have a spoon with hallmarks. I was wondering if anybody can identify it for me.



Hi Steve

Can you supply a photograph of the spoon and the hallmarks?

Hi Keith, I tried to post a photo but it doesn’t seem to show up… hope I will be able to get one up soon. I wil try again.

London, 1834. Maker is William Bateman II, great-grandson of Hester Bateman.

Thank you very much for that information, looks like you beat Keith to helping. Thanks Kieth for your help too.


That’s OK, you’ve got the answer. I do have a 5 hour time lag versus the UK.

Bateman silver is quite collectable, especially Hester Bateman.
