Spoons hallmarks identification

Hi everyone,
I have these spoons from my grandparents and just noticed the hallmarks on the back but cannot really identify them (I only found information about the FW and crown ones).

Does anyone know more about these?

Thank you :slight_smile:

These are not silver so the marks are manufacturers’ marks, not hallmarks.

Albescent Silver is a trade name used by Joseph Gilbert & Sons of Birmingham for a base metal alloy. The spoon may be electroplated or wholly base metal.

Although I cannot identify it for sure, your FW spoon was most probably made by Frederick Whitehouse & Co of Birmingham. They are know to have used “Electro Imperial” and “Imperial Silver” for their base metal alloy.
