Italian Shovel Bowl Spoons

This set of 6 Italian "800" silver shovel spoon bowls was among my first acquisitions.

I still am unsure as to their purpose, but they are enjoyable spoons

and I particularly enjoy the detail finials on Italian spoons

1. She wolf finial (Rome).

2. Winged Infant with snake (Florence)

3. Roman orator

1. Vatican City Coat of Arms

2. Medici Family Coat of Arms (per W. Kundis)

3.standing lion (San Remo)

Note: these spoons are also available in silver plate and pewter. The silver ones are marked "800".
If they do not have this marking, they are lower quality sets and much less valuable..
