This is a lot of 14 antique silver spoons originating from Hamburg, Germany in the 1800s. There are two 8 5/8" long serving spoons and twelve 7" long dinner/luncheon spoons.All the spoons have the transitional Hamburg Concession Mark which was used between 1820 and 1865. In around 1886, the German National System (800 silver content) was introduced.
Prior to the start of the 800 system, the silver content used in spoons was 750 (12 LOTH) used between 1760 - 1845 and 729 (11 LOTH + 12 Gran) in 1845. We can therefore state that the silver content in these spoons is a minimum of 729 (72.9%) and possibly 750 (75%). In addition to the Hamburg Concession Mark, the two larger spoons both have the same maker's mark and the twelve 7 spoons have two different maker's marks on them. A fine set of antique Hamburg silver spoons!
