What can you tell me about the markings on my spoons?

How old are they? Are they solid silver? Who made them? Where are they from?

Your image is upside down. I read it as K (or R) & Y (possibly) S plus another symbol. There is no indication here of any sort of silver standard and these marks are typical of electroplate manufacturers’ trademarks. I cannot find this combination of letters recorded, but there are still many unrecorded manufacturers awaiting identification. An S is often used by Sheffield manufacturers so this could be a Sheffield company.

The bottom line is that I am 99% sure your spoons are not silver.
