Senseless vandalism :
In the pic is a 17th century English silver spoon which is a very rare design with the Barleytwist handle with the Lion finial.Probably made for a royal household or something similar with a very old set of hallmarks i dont recognise.
Some Moron has totally ruined it by firstly cutting away parts of the bowl and engraving a design into it therefore reducing it in value from say 1,500 - 2,000 down to virtually nothing apart from its historical importance .
