New member and a question

Hello to everyone,

I am new here and also new to collecting silver. Although this is my introductory post I do have a question :slight_smile:

I have a large serving spoon with the name ’ BOULENGER’ stamped on the back, I believe it’s a French spoon but that’s all the info I’ve been able to assertain so far.

Can anyone shed any light on this for me?

Many Thanks
Elise
