I have a piece of William & Mary flatware by Lunt. It's about the size of a teaspoon, but where you would find a bowl, this piece is flat, except there's a turned up edge on the right side. It's 5 3/16" long and 1 3/16" at the widest. I see in Dolan - American Sterling Silver Flatware - 1993 that there is something in W&M called "server, flat, small". Is that possibly what I have?

I think I know the kind of piece you are talking about. I think this form developed in the 20th century; you don't see anything quite like it in the Victorian era. I always figured that they were for serving jellies; they certainly work better than the Victorian jam spoons, which look like big sugar shells and make a mess. I have a plated piece like yours that I use for cranberry sauce.

As for Dolan, it may well be the same piece.
