This mote or olive spoon/spear is from the 1880's. Made by Baker Manchester; while marked only sterling 925/100, this bowl shaped pierced with stars is theirs. The spoon has a twisted handle and is 8 1/4" long x 1 3/8" wide and weighs 9 grams. It would have been used to remove tea leaves or to spear olives. It is in excellent condition and awaits the pleasure of removing your tea leas or stabbing an olive.
