Silver and Flatware/Bruckmann Baby Spoon

Question
Bruckmann Baby Spoon
Bruckmann Baby Spoon  
Cleaning out my Mom's home and found an old baby spoon that is tilted for side feeding.  On the back is stamped Bruckmann and 90  1 1/2.

Answer
Hello.

This spoon is of German manufacture. The "90" indicates that it is made of silver plate (rather than sterling). I do not know what the "1 1/2" represent unless it has something to do with size. My guess is that it was made sometime between 1900 and 1970.

Best wishes,

Jim
