Pair of Chinese export silver condiment or mustard ladles (or master salt spoons) in the fiddle, thread pattern. Each ladle is marked with a "W" and three pseudo English hallmarks. No monogram or damage. Each measures approximately 3 7/8" long and the pair weigh 1.2 ozt. The mark is for Wongshing (or possibly Wongsheng per Chait, pg. 223) who was working in Canton, China from approximately 1830-1855.

Note that per the Forbes book on Chinese Export Silver, Wongshing made several large flatware sets for the American Market, particularly for Sea Captains and wealthy merchants (See Forbes, pg 146). This was likely part of a large set made for the American market, but would fit in nicely with any fiddle, thread flatware service.
