We don't normally purchase European silver but we couldn't resist this pretty little spoon with a simple form, nice hammering, and a great little bezel-set green stone on the handle.


Can anyone help us identify it? Thanks!

It is difficult to make out the marks from your photo, but they look like the crown and moon of Germany, post 1888. The number looks like 800, inidcating 80% pure silver. HV is probably the maker's mark, but I do not have a source to identify it.

Good luck,
Tom
