Silver (?) spoons

Hi! Please help me to recognize makrs on my spoons. There are 3 small spoons with figures of saints on it’s heads. Were bought in Middelburg (Holland). Has marks - star, 06, letter “u” in something. Can anybody say something about it?

Many thanks!

The marks are not Dutch silver marks so either your spoons are not Dutch or they are electroplated. It may be that the image of the mark is upside down and that the number is “90”. This therefore probably represents the plating quality. Rather than explaining it here can I refer you to this article on the web-site

Yes, I think that the image is really upside dowm. So, it is silverplated. And third mark now looks like gates))
