Here is a new one for us. It is 6.25" long. We think parfait spoon, but maybe it is a baby feeder.

I once had a Flora example of this form. My guess was also a parfait spoon. Although I don't know for certain, I feel the baby feeder spoon was a later invention, perhaps early to mid 20th century. Does anybody know a more accurate date for the introduction of the feeder spoon?

It looks to me like this Shiebler spoon is from yet another late 1880s multi-motif pattern.

I have seen this same piece three or four times, but never anything else in this pattern. Maybe this was the only item?

It's great!
This is my first time seeing this pattern.
Besides Richard & Brent, has anyone else seen this pattern before?
