"What kind of spoon is this? It’s made out of silver and the bowl is roughly 6.5cm in diameter. The handle is 13cm in length. Additionally is it possible to identify the hallmark?"
A: "These were used in days gone by when most silverware had a narrowly defined purpose. Berries, stewed fruits and fruit preserves would be served using these stubby-handled, wide-bowled compote servers. Going by the lovely turned edge on your spoon, I would venture that it was intended to serve berries. The curled edge helped prevent damaging the berries as they were served, so that they presented more attractively on the dish before the diner. What a nice example you have!"
