The folding spoon was invented for travelers. The idea would be that it would be light weight and combine two instruments into one. Sometimes a spoon and fork are involved. In this case, two different spoon bowls are involved.

Normally I do not collect these spoons, but I do have one example to show you.

The mark on this spoon is "800" which indicates that it is most likely manufactured in Germany or vicinity.
