Caddy spoon, Kings pattern

Maker’s mark: “AB” Other marks: castle, thistle, “D”, tree   Set of marks comprising his initials, “AB”, accompanied by marks that are a close imitation of the Edinburgh assay office marks for 1835 – 6; consisting of a ruined castle with two towers, a thistle, a gothic letter “D”, and a tree mark in an oval punch which is similar to the monarch’s head duty mark.   These are not exact copies of genuine marks, possibly so that Burgess could argue that they were not intended to be forgeries.   Purchased with the assistance of the National Fund for Acquisitions, administered with government funds by the National Museums of Scotland.
