Hi Rachel,
Thanks for sending over those photos.
Your antique Apostle spoon was produced in London in 1891. Unfortunately the maker's marking is unable to read (the first marking from the left in the photo) so it's tough to tell who exactly made it.
The Apostle spoons were very common around the turn of the 20th century and there were a range of makers's in the world producing these at the time.
In excellent condition your antique sterling silver Apostle spoon would have a retail value of 30-40GBP.
If there are any dents or dings in the silver, this would detract from the resale value.
I hope this information was helpful to you today Rachel.
Best of luck with your antique sterling silver spoon.
Any feedback you can leave for my service would be much appreciated.
Thank You,
Frank
