I have acquired a spoon with the hallmarks in the picture attached and am unsure whether they are the marks of Hester Bateman. I understand that Hester Bateman and Henry Bailey marks can sometimes look very similar. I had thought that the date letter ‘u’ was that for 1795 (London), but now I almost certainly think it looks like 1835 (especially judging by the monarch’s head). If this is the case, is it too late for Bateman (was she dead by then?!).
