This set are engraved to the handles with the initials WMJ.
They are in very good condition with a little less than the usual surface scratching than you'd expect for their age and no dings or dents, and less than the usual dimpling and wear to the bowls - SUPERB condition. Each is hallmarked on the reverse of the handle with ABS, lion passant (sterling silver assay mark), leopard head,p, George IV duty mark showing that they were each hallmarked in London in 1830.
