Here is my spoon hoard I found last year after a lot of research and thanks to a mint mark found in the bowl of one of the spoons. I dated the oldest one back to the late 1500s.

I put it next to a silver quarter (I found recently) to show how dang small it is.

Bandsons,

I like that spoon! I wonder if it was made bent like that, to make it easier for a baby to eat with? I have seen spoons made that way if I remember right..

Nice work all!

Thank you! Your spoon is epic!

I don't think they made it bent... but being that it is such a tiny spoon, i love it. Somebody was born with a silver spoon in their mouth and I found it burred in the dirt!

I have pulled a few pieces of silverware from the ground but nothing solid sterling yet. Big congratulations on your find.

GL and HH.

Here is my best silver spoon found at a private residence in town. Also found a couple of silver coins in the same yard.

A couple of mine, I guess the tiny spoon is a salt spoon.

This is the best one I've ever found. It's a sterling "Three Little Pigs" spoon.

I think those are worth like $30, nice spoon.
The only ones I have found are silver plated, or twisted up

Here is a partial collections of my less-desirable spoons from this year (actually there are a few that are quite nice, just incomplete) - at least a dozen more kicking around here somewhere including a few big ladles...
Lastly, a late 1800's/early 1900's baby spoon whose handle was flattened out in the soil...

Ice Scratcher, Your spoon comes from the period known as "Art Nouveau", literally new art. This stylistic movement flourished between 1890 - 1910. Alphonse Mucha a Czech artist produced a lithograph of the famous Sarah Bernhardt. It was a completely new style of art which quickly became popular. The Mucha Style influenced other great artists and designers of the period Klimt, Mackintosh, Lalique, Gaudi and Tiffany! The patent stamp says 1902 which is the date the patent was issued. Hence the spoon had to have been manufactured after that date!

Nothing special but it is a spoon that was found with my MD. Sterling plated.
