This fish fork clearly marked with the "Spindelpresse" for Wilkens, 835S and some other marks: the Dutch "V" (vreemd) a Duty mark for imported objects used 1906-1953 and three marks, a climbing bear, a man'sface and a bird. What stand the three marks for?

Just for the records: 10 years ago I was wrong, but I had time to learn. Yes Pochon in Bern, Switzerland. My statment from 10 years ago it is not Bern was incorrect.
But the fun part is, you show us a similar item as from the discussion 10 years ago, same marking, same Wilkens pattern, same fork type. Yours is just much less worn. What a coincident!
