The first order reference on English silver marks and makers, Jackson's Hallmarks, adds "Important Art Nouveau" to the side margin entry about Liberty & Co., whose "L&C" in diamonds, "lion" for sterling, "anchor" for Birmingham, date letter "e" for 1904-05 appear on the 1 1/4" diameter, round, bowl backside of this 4 3/8" long, weighty at .9 T. oz., spoon.

The import of Liberty & Co. is apparently more significant than the modest comment in Jackson's implies.
