Hello,
My name isCustomerand I would love to help. There were no photos of the piece/set that came with your original inquiry. Add pictures of the pattern on the handle and the maker's mark on the back by using the +Add File feature.

I am unable to supply a photo. There is no pattern on the handle and I have given you the maker's mark, which again is, "A1 1OZ EP ASHBERRY" followed by tiny pick which to me looks like a windmill, I know it is not but I cannot tell, could be a person holding a large scythe.

This is a silver plated (not silver) spoon made circa 1890 by Philip Ashberry and Sons of Sheffield, England, no pattern name.

The image is their logo of an arm holding a spear. The letters A1 represent the quality of the plating and the EP is for Electro Plated. This spoon has a current value of $20USD.

Please do click the stars now for this one (bonuses are also welcome!), it is very important for me
to get good feedback for answering.
