I believe this is a child's spoon with its ABC engraving and a length of 5.25" and a bowl width of 1". It has the usual Gorham mark and then a S and a T in a diamond. Any info on what those marks mean? Or are they another example of marks that meant something to Gorham, but wouldn't necessarily mean something to us? Thanks, Kelly

These marks are discussed in Weight symbols and in Weight marks on Gorham Chantilly but it doesn't look like any consensus has been reached concerning them.

I'm not as knowledgeable as a lot of the others here, but from your description and picture, it looks like a five o'clock spoon in the Mothers pattern to me. I'll have to search my odds and ends, 'cause I'm sure I had one of these with the same S T markings, but I think I may have given it away as a Christmas present!

Edit: After looking through boxes and rolled flatware wraps and finding all sorts of things I had forgotten that I had or had forgotten where they were, I found that I had a Mothers spoon buried under the mess on my computer desk! This one is engraved in the bowl McGregor Tower. The bowl is the same width as yours, but the length is 5.5 inches. It has the same S T in diamonds.
