Here are six high quality spoons that are possibly 830 parts out of a thousand silver. They are seven inches long. My guess is that they were made in Norway. I'm looking for verification of this and any further identification that might be offered.

Not Norwegian, but Danish: Ole Peter Řrsnes of Aalborg, Denmark, working 1838-1861. His widow continued his shop until 1869.

Hope this helps!

Thank you! That's fantastic. What a site.
I was speculating about Norway just because of the Orsnes town name there. They do look to be solid silver, well made and yes Danish also to my untrained eye. Thanks again.

Here's a link to Danish craftsman that looks pretty useful. I'll wait to hear about the policy on posting links, but this does look good. Danske sølvmærker 1890 - 2010
It looks like Ole Peter Ornes's son in law may have carried on with the family business. P Orsnes Enke continued in business until 1957.

Thank you. I have the low down on posting links, and this list is also very much appreciated.
