Marked only "Sterling," and likely dating from early in the 20th century, this American salt spoon takes its form from a much earlier type of piece.
Measuring 3 5/8" long and weighing just over .2 T. oz., it has a rounded "antique" handle, and a scoop or shovel bowl with a pierced, "hooded," element. The bowl also has a gold was finish on the interior.
It is in excellent condition, showing very little evidence of use or wear, and having a high luster, hand polished, finish.
