Silver and Flatware/Spoon


What type spoon is this?  On backside is Reed & Barton 3
PA? Nov 4 1884 (There is a character where I placed the question mark.  I cannot tell what that character is.)


Tried to send picture.  Could not.  Please e-mail me and I will send a picture.


The character might be a "T". That would be consistent with patent date. I agree with your note on the picture that this might be a jelly spoon. Someone on eBay agrees with us because they have listed a spoon like this as a jelly spoon.

I don't have any reference sources to back this up but that's my best guess.

Best wishes,


Silver and Flatware
