Here is a little, 5 1/2", handmade spoon marked Goff. Anyone know who this is? Or for what this might have been used?

Enlarging the mark it appears there are additional initials P H or J H. so I guess we are looking for a P H Goff or J H Goff.

the top letter in the closeup looks like an L to me as there is a faint line at the bottom, turning a perhaps stylized P into an L.

The letters on my spoon are C and R. Is there a Goff family? Or do the different letters signify something else?

I just acquired these Goff spoons. The lower initial appears to be a B. I will need to examine when they arrive.
