I have been trying to get those photos to come through, but there seems to have been a problem in the upload process.
You may have used a file size that was too large.

I apologize for the delay, but do look forward to seeing those photos.

Thanks for sending over those photos.
Your sterling silver Spoon with would have been produced by English silversmith Amanda Birkitt in London in 1990. Your modern spoon with hanging hook would have a current retail value of 100-125GBP.
If there are any dents or dings in the silver or any deep scratches, this would detract from the resale value.
I hope this information was helpful to you today.
Best of luck with your Sterling Silver Spoon .
Any feedback you can leave for my service would be much appreciated.
Thank You,
Frank
