An unusual form, it is probably a variant of a horseradish spoon. About the size of a mustard ladle, it has a considerably larger, and oval rather than round, bowl, the end of which has a distinguishing sawtooth edge...
It is a 6 7/8" long, just short of 1.0 T. oz., preserve or jelly spoon.

The pattern is "Pompadour" by Whiting. It is an embellished "Queen" design offered in, appropriate to the name, a French manner.

Measuring 9 3/8" long and weighing just over 1.0 T. oz., it has a central disk which in this case is inscribed with a delicate script "J.S.B." monogram.

Similar to, but smaller than, a tomato server, it has flat, 2 1/4" diameter, decoratively pierced blade...
Price per piece. Seven available, all matching.

There is a lightly engraved, script "L.H.K." monogram on the backside of the handle.
This piece is small at 4 3/8" long and weighing just over .3 T. oz.

Marks on the underside are the Gorham "lion, anchor, G" emblem, "Sterling," the model number "A1965," and the date symbol for 1898.
It has a flat bottom and reticulated, undula...
The theme is nautical and precisely rendered, expressing on the handle a portraiture of a crab in a fishing net, the handle of which forms the spine of the spoon handle itself. This is all encircled with a second mesh of netting with floats.
The bowl is most akin to Gorha...
This example is a large 5 7/8" long, heavy at 1.8 T. oz., pair of tongs. The pair is certainly sufficiently scale...
It was made by New York's Gale & Hughes whose "G&H" mark appears on the blade along with a three part mark that includes, following William Gales' custom, the date "1849."

The broad, blunt end blade widens at the u...

All of this is reflected in this example made by the Sterling Silver Manufacturing Company (later Saart) of Providence, Rhode Island.
It measures 7 1/2" long and weighs 1.3 T. oz. The flanged rim bowl is 3 1/4" wide, 2 1/8" front to back, and 1" deep. It has a frosted matte gold fi...
The scroll effect is derived from high relief leaf forms arrayed on the upper half of the handle.
Flower blossoms, perhaps wild rose or dogwood, are set below this, and lastly there is another section of leafy detailing. All in all, the pattern is something akin to a repousse with an Aesthetic influence.
This example is a 5 11/16" long, weighty at nearl...
The overall style clearly falls in the Arts & Crafts mode, with clean lines and straightforward detailing. This is reinforced by the somewhat medieval "R.A.C" monogram engraved on the top lid. This is quite reminiscent of lettering used on Shreve's contemporaneous "Fourteenth Century" and...
It is a quality example, showing overall fine hammer marks. Apart from light surface scratches, it shows no signs of use. The bowl remains well-shaped and is free of tip wear, dents, or burrs.
The backside has a block letter "L.H.B" monogram.
Marks are "GI in a circle of dots," "Sterling," and "Denmark."
