1) 1888 – The oldest and smallest spoon is sterling and has a finial in the shape of a knight’s head. It is hallmarked on the back of the bowl and the marks indicate that the piece was made in London (England) by John Septimus Beresford in 1888. It is 2¾ inches (7.25 cm) long.

2) 1950 – The mother of pearl spoon, marked “Jerusalem” on the handle is most likely a mid-century tourist piece from Israel. It is 2 & 7/8 inches (7.5 cm) long.

It is 3 & 1/8 inches (8 cm) long.
