I presume this not the mark for London 1810/1811?

If I am wrong, any likely maker?

My gut is Chinese Export, but don't recognize the maker mark.

Without seeing the piece (I assume it's a spoon?), my thought is it's from Exeter dated to 1811. The dates work for William Welch II however William Woodman was also working pretty close to this time as well. Both were noted for flatware.

Thank you. It is a smallish teaspoon. I will post some images tomorrow.

I agree with Trefid2. William Welch II seems most likely

Agreed as well on Exeter; the thing that confused me was the "period" mark after the date letter.

Thank you all. The period after the P is just a flake in the background oxidation. Here is the spoon, which measures 5 inches.

As the city mark was left off, did the form of the other two marks identify the city as Exeter?

The shape of the lion passant's cartouche is different in Exeter.
