J. Munro, St. John, New Brunswick, Canada, Silver Teaspoon

Canadian pseudo hallmarks frequently mirror their English counterparts even more closely than American ones do, and that is the case with this 5 5/8" long, just under .5 T. oz., silver tea, or actually coffee, spoon.

It is stamped with a crown, a bust, a lion passant, and the letters "IM" and "NB." The letters stand for J. Munro and New Brunswick (Canada) respectively, while the symbols look very much like hallmarks for Sheffield, England.

Munro's dates are from the 1810s to the 1860s. ... Click for details

In his comprehensive volume on Tiffany silver flatware, William Hood writes extensively about the "Vine" pattern and its many motifs.

Along with numerous illustrations, he includes an inventory of the various pieces organized by their portraiture. He mentions the berry shovel, but does not offer an image (although he does illustrate it in another line), suggesting it is a rare form in this pattern. Much more common is the berry spoon.

The berry shovel outsizes the berry spoon in all... Click for details
