Hello; late reply, I know, but I hope that it helps you.

The spoons are NOT from Jersey.

The spoons have been made by Bruce Russell at La Gron in GUERNSEY and only sold by Gallichan in Jersey.

The marks are:

Island of Guernsey with BR inside it.

Arms of Guernsey.

Letter R is a year mark, but I don’t know the year system for Bruce Russell, (who is not part of the British hallmark system).

You could telephone them. Their number is +44 1481 268 082. They have a website at www.guernseymint.com, but it’s dedicated more to bullion, and there’s no real information about their silverware.

I sell their bullion on my website: www.lainson.eu (in the 1 oz speciality section).

Let me know if you require more answer.
