    Just curious about the marks on these.
    Seems to be mostly a Scandinavian thing to hand down silverware pieces for many generations - even work out ones.

    Looks like heavy electroplate on brass. Not finding any reference for the lion or P marks. birch 032.JPG

    Danish two-tower and 'P' marks indicate silverplate (P = plet/plate), if I recall correctly, both out of use by the 1930s - the lion looks familiar to me, but probably because of the Norwegian coat of arms...

    The P is for plett - plated.
