You can tell that I don't want to get down to today's work on hand! - also that I am thrilled to have mastered the camera!

Here is a teaspoon and its mark, apparently c.1825-75; no pip or drop on the back, nicely made and of good gauge.

Not much to go on - just the maker's name.

Any ideas?

Does it help that the spoon was bought in Dresden?

Silver Lyon,

I had a similar problem with sparsely marked German spoon. I learned via the forum that retailers could sometimes mark spoons without the customary national mark. Here is the thread, which you may find useful:
