I picked up this little spoon a short while ago, in one of my favorite Gorham patterns, Hizen. But I can't decide what type of spoon it is. I think it's either a toddy spoon or a chocolate spoon. Can anybody pin it down for certain? The spoon is 4-5/16" long.

The bowl is a neat asymmetric shell shape. The last picture is just a detail shot of the pattern.

Given the fluted bowl, I would have thought it a small scale sugar spoon or perhaps a relish.

A sugar shell was my opinion and as I was saying as much to Scott, he pulled up wev's response. So, we have a consensus of at least two.

I didn't even take into account the fluted bowl--I just thought it was part of the design.

Your pics have been withdrawn; so I'm going on the basis of two options: toddy or chocolate.

Not toddy - this I know, and probably not chocolate either. Sugar is your best bet, but look at the size and pre-determine what you would like to use it for. Isn't that what collecting is all about? Love K

After I fixed the broken images at the start of this thread, I received the following from Karen via e-mail:

quote:
Not choco (too decorative) and definiatly not Toddy. It is however, a wonderfully cast item. Possibly single struck which would denote its origin to be American.

Nice piece - BUT it's not choco or toddy in english form.

It may be a little big, but could it be a master salt? Did they make small size sugar shells to go with demitasse sets?

Interesting spoon, but it seems to be too large for a salt spoon, and too small for a sugar spoon. The size would seem to me to indicate that it was a nut spoon, prehaps an almond scoop. Nice mystery!
