"I think the hard part now is going to be trying to estimate the value. If it's a replica, but still sterling silver (which it is, sterling that is) do I base it on the weight of the spoon? Or maybe it was a custom made item and again, sterling…"
"Discovering exactly what this serving spoon is specifically intended for may be a tricky task.
Look hard enough and you will find someone out there has made a serving spoon for just about everything from specifically serving small peas to cucumber,…"
"If you click on them individually you can pull them up one at a time. For some reason that's the only way they would load. Here are a few more. I think Liz is right when she says it's most likely a custom made item, still sterling silver,…"

Note the larger handled items, Knife, Spreaders, Servers etc have a slightly different design. Also, there have been more modern releases of the…"
"I think the pattern is the same but that your serving spoon is just more ornate. The utensils I found look like basic cutlery/silverware. Look into the other pieces that Michael found to see if you find the extra details there."
"Hi Molly, while these are very similar, the spoon I have has quite a bit more detail on other parts of the spoon and I can't find any specialty pieces to compare to, but we're getting close!! Thank you!!"
"Definitely the same pattern.
