This piece is a very large detailed silver dragon that was probably designed to be a spoon rest.
But it could also have other uses, including being a bon bon spoon or small candy server.

I have included a ruler in the picture to give you an idea of size

This is a side view as the dragon is very three dimensional .

This is a top view

The entire dragon body is extensively chased to show scales and there was a lot of silver sawing work as well as soldering to put the different pieces together.
The bowl is fluted using repousse workmanship.The horns are very big.

There are no marks.

I do not know who, what  when, where, or why this piece was created.
