Customer Question

Hi, I have 2 old table/serving spoons and have been trying to identify makers. I think one may be John Round & Sons - it has MATADOR SILVER JR & S (first 2 words in 0val shapes and letters in individual but joined shapes) The second spoon has 3 symbols then N.M.40 with 'Comfort' stamped up near the top of the handle. I wonder if you may be able to help identify them please?
JA: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?
Customer: The first one looks older, is very plain whereas the 2nd one is heavily 'embossed' or engraved with scrolls and leaves - different looking silver.
