Please Help me with Value & Indenty


#1

Howdy,
Can anyone help me identify this Sweet Angel Spoon set. I found it in an area Antiques Store and fell in Love with it right away. It includes what appears to be a Large serving Spoon that measures 7 1/4" long and a small spoon that measures 5 1/2" long. They are both signed on their backs D9Mai. They are marked I 800 and come in their Original Box. Does anyone know the maker or value. Thank You Very Much For All your Help Friend.

Hi Carol,
Its very hard for me to tell you anything without pictures i’m afraid. If you follow the instructions in the photographing silver section, it should be easy to get the pictures uploaded.

Regards
Jonathan

Miss Carol, Uncle Vic here. We need a close up of the maker’s marks, probably on the back of the spoon handles to give you some idea of who made them and what they may be worth.

Regards,

Uncle Vic

Thanks, Miss Carol. My guess is the spoons are European, thus the “800” for 80% silver. The “I” appears to be a city mark, but I can’t find it in my books, but Continental silver is not something I know a lot about. My further guess is the date was engraved and commemorates some occasion and the spoons were a gift about that time. A pair of nice 800 spoons like yours would sell for $100-200 here in the USA.

Best wishes,

Uncle Vic
