identification help required

Postby blueheron » Wed Jun 19, 2019 3:21 pm

I am not sure that this is even Irish so excuse me if I am off. A DE in a trefoil cartouche, both spoons have the same double crown (harp?) mark and a date mark M. I am new to the forum and having problems posting pics so please bear with me.

thank you.

These are not Irish but where they are from I do not know. Hopefully someone else will.
