Hi!

 

I have two spoons marked with the ANZAC rising sun and they say stainless Nikel HM&Co made in england. Can anyone give me any information? :)

I have this spoon but assume it`s of much later origin.

These examples appear to be the same. I couldn’t see a date but 1940’s examples seem to be marked Allbrite N.S.

Stainless dates from approx 1913.

NS may indicate nickel silver, a different animal from stainless steel?:unsure:

Indeed - I thought your spoon and those in MWA may be earlier as Allbrite cutlery seems to change stamp from SS to NS in the 40’s.
