Great extra info Laura thank you, I had no idea it was called Kings pattern, and have included that info in my descriptions. Interestingly the piece I chopped up was marked leopard head, London, Victoria head, duty (abolished in 1890) and date letter e for 1860, makers mark I could not identify but looked like a fancy lower case e f into a heart.

No problem Kwant, glad my head full of useless cutlery info can help
I've been working with silver-plated spoons for a little while as they are so much cheaper than the sterling silver. This is one I've just finished that has taken me ages!!
It's a useful sugar spoon for slimmers too, Laura. Dennis.

The silver is quite thick 2mm so I drilled through smaller than the stone, then cut a seat with a stone setting burr, undercut the edges then rubbed them down to fix the stones in.
