Hi DutchKiwi,

It is most definately Dutch. The hallmarks read from left to right:

1. VH8 - The maker mark of Petrus Van Harderwijk who was in business in Utrecht in The Netherlands between 1843 and 1902.

2. Lion passant above arabic number 2 in hexagon - The official mark of The Netherlands used between 1814 and 1953 guaranteeing an overall silver fineness of the article of no less than 833/1000 but less than 934/1000.
3. Minerva Head with assay office letter ′B′ in helmet - Official mark of The Netherlands with the regional assay office mark ′B′ which was the letter assigned to the Utrecht Assay Office.
4. Date letter ″S″ with serifs - Official mark of The Netherlands corresponding to the year 1877.

The information provided by each mark supports all others, so in short:

Made in Utrecht in 1877 by Petrus Van Harderwijk

Cheers,
Steve
