Spoon with Albert name and Lion passant stamp?

Hello, I’m trying to identify several silver spoons from my mother’s stash of collectibles. This one in particular looked interesting. The lion passant is facing left which I believe means it’s silver. Would appreciate any help identifying this spoon.

Thank you!

This lion passant is a trade mark and has no significance in terms of silver content. Only on English silver is a lion passant a guarantee of sterling (925) silver but this is nothing like an English lion passant and, in addition, does not have the other essential components of a hallmark.

On close inspection the word to the right of the lion is “Nicrosil” which implies to me a silvery-looking alloy of nickel and chromium, so possibly not even electroplated.
