Spoons. Sugar Tongs, Pepper Box and Mustard Pot.  The large spoon shown is for !raly; and i about i inches in lengti. the little spoon, with the open
work bowl and straight needle-like handle, was used in colonial days for taking tea out fi the tea caddy and the pointed handle was used to punch out
the nose of the tea pot when it became clogged with tea leaves.  These pieces of silver are very typical of the old style and very valuable.
