    Three tower for 826, JS for Johannes Siggaard ( not sure what is an assay master). I guess SP is the maker.
    The spoons are the same pattern but two of them 1947 and one 1948.

    There are only 2 SP makers on this list, but only one was working during the 40's - Sigfred Pedersen of Hareskovby.

    The Assay Master was the official responsible for the assaying determination of finished goods. His mark ensures that the item met the required silver fineness standard.

    Denmark's minimum fineness was raised from .826 to .830 in 1936...
