Spoon identification Irish

Could I get some help identifying the year/value of this spoon.

So far I think it’s Irish but apart from that I am not sure.

Adding a better picture of the markings.

Seeing here that it’s probably 1820.

Any info on the crest/emblem and makers mark would be good also.

Yes, the date is 1820. The maker’s mark is upside down in relation to the hallmark so IS is James Scott. Your spoon is nothing special so you should be able to get an idea of its value by checking out Ebay’s “sold” items for mustard spoons of a similar age. You may be able to find the armorial in Fairbairn’s Crests, several editions of which are available online.


That is fantastic, thank you Phil!
