I’m new here. I bought an apostle spoon at a flea market in Barcelona earlier this month. I thought it looked pretty cool and I wondered if it was an antique. After I brought it home, I noticed it there were markings on the back of the spoon. Can anyone tell me what the markings mean, how old the spoon is and if it has any value?
Yes, this is an antique (over 100 years old). The marks show that it is sterling silver, assayed in Birmingham in 1912/13 and made by Barnett Henry Abrahams, a London silversmith. As it is silver it does have some value, but it won’t make your fortune. You may be able to find something similar in Ebay’s completed auctions to give you some idea of the value.
