The (unknown) maker's mark on the back uses the English Design Registry convention from 1868-1883, most often seen on pottery: a baseball diamond shape with "I" in the top circle, indicating the class of metal; in the diamond, the number "9" on top, for the day of the month; the letter "D" to the right for the year, 1878; "D" in the bottom, for the month, September; and the number "7" to the left, for the bundle number (whatever that was!)...the letters "Rd" in the middle stand for Registry Design, I assume.
Condition: Extremely good! There is some slight plate loss on the back of the bowls; otherwise, the silver glows with a lovely luster, and the exquisite details are enhanced by a light patina.
These measure 9.5" in length [24.15cm], and the spoon bowl is about 1/2" deep [1.3cm].
