A very beautiful and impressive spoon/fork set for a 25th silver wedding anniversary

windmill 25th anniversary silver server spoon
I have included a ruler and a normal tea sized spoon on the right to help you visualize the size
"mechanical" -- means that the windmill blades will spin

This very impressive set was manufactured out of sterling silver for resale at the prestigious Marshall Fields of Chicago ( model # 7011)
Engraved on the back "S.M. 1898 - 1923"
Both pieces have mechanical windmills
There is no manufacture stamp, but I am sure that this set was custom ordered through Marshall Fields
