Silver and Flatware/Silver spoon

Silver spoon  
I was hoping you could tell me what the purpose of this 'spoon' was?  And possibly where it may have come from.
It is 4.5" long.
Thank you, and have a great day,

Hi, Kara.

I've never seen one quite like this. I wonder if it for something granular like salt or sugar??

I suggest posting your picture and question on the forum at Several experts participate and maybe one will recognize it.

Sorry I could not be of more help.

Best wishes,


Silver and Flatware
