Flushed with the success of discovering the maker of my Berlin jug (thank you all...), I have two further queries that have thus far defeated me.

The first is this magnificent ladle with turned wooden handle.

It has a large oval mark, which appears to be "GHC" in monogram. There is a secondary mark, which appears to be a maker's mark, on the back. This looks like "CBL", but it may be "GBL" or similar.

I am not at all convinced that this is silver, as the metal is very hard, but it has such a lovely shape and tactile allure, that I can't help but wonder if my doubts are groundless.

Any help would be, as always, most appreciated.

Nice shaped punch ladle, also monograms which seems to be G. I. C. The silver mark I didn't saw before, but me knowledge is not to much. I think by the way the monograms and old silver mark is hardly to read there are a lot of experts at this forum . I'm curious about the results. Success!!!!!

I've one from Norway I think they are produced by many countries but I never have seen one with a wooden handle. I'll follow the results, good luck,
