Sorry it took me so long to get back. No, it is none of the above.

Actually the clue word was "served" as in "in the past." I doubt these are used anymore.

I will be gone for several hours and will not be able to respond until late tonight.

I will give a big hint though. It was used to remove a specific item from a serving dish.

LOL It would probably work for that Fred, but no! It is for a food item. Something we still eat but as often as not now use our fingers to remove from the dish.

Think sweet!

Ok, I am on my way out the door now! If you come up with it and then do a search you can confirm it that way. Otherwise I will be home in 7 hours or so.

Yep! I was reading that they used to use them before refrigeration and preservatives made bon bons less messy.

I read that earlier yesterday, but I didn't come across any spoons that ornate, so didn't think that was it. Not until you said it was for sweets.

OK, probably too easy...
What is this called?
