This is a group of three identical sterling silver serving spoons, all manufactured by the Kirk Silver Company of Baltimore, MD. Each spoon is 9 1/2 inches long and each bowl is 2 inches wide and 3 1/4 inches long. Each spoon is stamped on the back of the handle with "S. Kirk & Son Inc., Sterling," which places it within the 1925 and 1932 years of manufacture. The "Fiddle" pattern was manufactured by Kirk only rarely (usually 19th century), and we wondered if this was a small line of pieces to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the United States. The markings on the back of the handle also include the name "Burnett," which we could not identify. Whether this was a designer or another manufacturer is unknown. On the back of the handle of each spoon is an engraved "C." This mark is also a mystery. There are no other markings, engravings, or signatures. The condition of each spoon is excellent with normal signs of wear. One bowl has a very minor dent in the middle, which can barely be noticed. Otherwise, there are no other dents, no warps, bends. or other problems. Each spoon weighs 135 grams.
