I'm relatively certain the the mark on this spoon is for Rostock, Germany. 3 sources I referenced, including Tardy, state that this mark was not used after the 17th century, but this spoon is clearly not that old. I would guess the date to be more late 18th century. The monograms may suggest that the spoon was handed down through several generations?

The pattern is 'Gammal Fransk' (Old French), classic Swedish, originating in the 18th century...

Thank you both for the replies. I find it interesting how some patterns become traditional and don't change for long periods of time.
