This mark is on an early spoon. I'm not sure-it looks like it is TFD in slanted script. Thanks for any help.

Nothing comes to mind, sorry to say. Any idea what that first bit is? A crown over something? A shot of the full spoon might give a clue.

Here's another photo. The bowl on the spoon has been rehammered (not sure if that is the correct term). The mark appears to be a crown with 3 dots at the base and a cross on top and 3 petals below it. Thanks for your help, I am struggling with these!

The crown mark looks like one of the German states -- Dresden perhaps?
