I need help identifying the origin and maker of a set of four spoons.

The upper mark below the zigzag looks to be either an N or an H. The lower left mark has crossed swords with the letter T above and what looks like a small a on the bottom. The lower right mark is a cursive CK.

Any help would be appreciated.

I believe that's 19th-century Leipzig, but hope that Blakstone will stop by to confirm with details.

Yes, that's right, from the first quarter by the looks of it. The maker is Karl Constantin Keuhl, a prolific Leipzig maker working in the first half of the 19th century.

Unfortunately, 19th century Leipzig date letters have not ( to my knowledge) been identified; the only reference for 19th century Leipzig silversmiths I know of is in an obscure 1935 German journal I've never been able to put my hands on.
