Monogrammed "HJT" in ornate period script, these handsome, heavy serving spoons are in excellent original condition, with no repairs, removals or alterations.
The mark "KHC" is listed in several sources as the shop mark for Khecheong. The marks on these spoons and others I have seen more resemble "KHG" than they do "KHC". Considering the name of the firm, "KHG" would make more sense than would "KHC".
Why would there be a "C" following the "H" when the name of the firm ends in "G"? The mark "KHG" would seem to make perfect sense, although such an attribute is not always trustworthy and I have seen clealry struck "KHC" marks, as on the dessert spoon below these.
