    Got a worn monogram here, hoping that with the age and the fact it's old silver, I got a good surname here. Manages to work out it begins with F and ends with K so far.

    It looks like "Frank" to me.

    Did you get the 900 fineness from testing or is there a 900 stamp not shown?

    What country do you think they are from? The 2 punches surrounding the W are a mystery to me.

    Just wondering, what does a good surname mean to you?
    The glare of the flash goes right through the name. Could you take a photo without flash, in daylight and against a white background?

    I tried to tweak the marks so you wouldn't see all those coloured pixels. Looks like there are letters or other details on either side of the W and the object on the right (oil lamp? vase?).
    IIW....

    Idle guess is that in this context "good surname" means legible and traceable.

    Does anyone read the mark on the left as 13? As in 13 Lot?
    If it is 13 Lot, it wouldn't be .900 though, but .812.

    I thought it was a fish at first.;)

    If this is a children's set, that's likely a first name.

    Odd pattern for children? Can we see the full items and reference for size?

    Not having seen the whole items yet, I'm thinking "youth size" rather than what we think of today as "child size."
