Silver spoon - date?

Hi there. I found this old spoon in my draw I think came from carboot sale. I’ve been wondering how old is it? I will be very grateful if somebody replays with more info. Thank you in advance

Your spoon is electroplated - I hope you didn’t think it was silver. The manufacturer was William Hutton & Sons of Sheffield. Unfortunately electroplate doesn’t normally provide any dating evidence but your spoon is likely to date from either the end of the 19th century into the first part of the 20th century.

Thank you very much for your quick replay. I presumed it was silver but nevermind goes back in the draw!
Thanks
