Two silver (tea?) spoons


I’m a bit stuck on these. Can anyone help me read these marks? Both are different spoons about the size of a teaspoon.
Apologies for the quality of the second snap!



The first spoon has a London 1817 hallmark. I read the maker’s mark as IH. If so, it will be either John Hawkins or John Harris who had near-identical marks. The second one is Birmingham 1928; the maker’s mark is WMCo for Wilmot Manufacturing Co of Birmingham.

Thank you for your reply, it is appreciated… I was quite baffled by the makers marks! Not any more though, ta.
