Gorham
click for details
This pattern is identified in the Gorham archives (housed at Brown University and cataloged by scholar Sam Hough) as "Old English." It is commonly referred to, however, as "Seal Top" after the round, flat disk that surmounts the end of the faceted shank, which in turn follows after a traditional "old English" form.

Almost never marked, it frequently goes unrecognized for what it is, namely coin silver produced by the above maker. Wood & Hughes made a nearly identical pattern with the same... Click for details

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
