This example is a large, 10 1/2" long, just under 2.6 T. oz., serving spoon. It has a wide and deep bowl (there is an otherwise identical spoon with a narrower bowl) resulting in a particularly generous capacity.

Described by one source as "jewelry-esque," this is assembled from a variety of parts, rather than... Click for details
