While the handles of a shovel and a spoon are typically constructed from different materials, they are both designed to provide a comfortable grip and make it easier to use the tool. This type of silver spoon can be found in many forms; teaspoon, dessert spoon, table spoon, sugar sifter spoon etc., and would generally be used for serving soft fruits. The bowls are elaborately embossed with fruits, the stems are often engraved and are either wholly or partly gilded to protect the silver from the corrosive effects of fruit acids. Most examples found in this category have been later embellished e.g. a plain Georgian spoon decorated by a Victorian hand. Any examples found hallmarked prior to 1840 should be viewed with suspicion. There are two fields of thought regarding these spoons. Firstly, that an elegant spoon has been vandalised and secondly that an attractive single spoon contains the tastes and craftsmanship of two distinct eras. These spoons are not fakes and are legitimate on the open market, although I would suggest that they should be sold as "with later decoration". Shovels come in a variety of sizes and shapes, while spoons are usually round with a bowl-shaped cavity and a handle.

Shovels have a wide, flat blade with a sharp edge that helps to scoop up material and move it around. While a shovel can be used for a variety of tasks, such as digging, scooping, and moving soil, it is primarily used outdoors. Mustard spoons are classed as small items, and were hallmarked in a different manner to larger items during the late 18th and early 19th Centuries - seeteaspoonsection below for an explanation of the methods employed.Some shovels even have special features, such as a serrated edge to help with cutting through tough soil or a long handle to help with reaching into deep holes.

sugar nips are usually only part marked on both finger rings with the lion passant and maker's mark. They can however be accurately dated by their form. Bowl form developed from plain with rattail through plain to shell-shaped. Arms and finger grips developed from plain to ornate. In Western cultures, spoons are often made of silver or stainless steel, while in Eastern cultures, spoons are often made of wood, bamboo, or ceramic. What are the Similarities Between a Shovel and a Spoon? It is a versatile tool that can also be used for removing snow, spreading mulch, or even for scooping up pet food. MOST COLLECTABLE: Novelty, unusual shapes/engraving, Scottish Provincial & Irish, rare marks, sought after makers. Silver caddy spoons, in line with other small London-made spoons, will be marked only twice (lion passant & maker) on examples made prior to 1781, three times between 1781 & 84 (addition of date letter), four times from 1784 (addition of duty mark) until finally, in 1821, the leopard's head mark was added to make up the full complement of hallmarks. Seeteaspoonsection below for a full explanation.

The blades of shovels can also be made from different materials, such as steel, aluminum, or plastic. The mustard spoon is often confused with the salt spoon. The bowl of the mustard spoon is always elongated to form a scoop, whereas the bowl of a salt spoon is round and deep and conveys the salt like a ladle (see photo). Another confusion can be made with the generally bigger egg spoons, this style of egg spoon is particularly numerous amongst Irish marked items. Most examples began life as part of a canteen and follow the form of the patterns, but variations on mainly Birmingham marked pieces, such as engraved decoration and variations in form can be found. They date from about 1760, and have tended to become much smaller in size from the late Victorian era. A very common item, often found in association with teaspoons or canteens. They were used for pinching lumps from sugar loaves and pre-dated sugar nips with the highly desirable andiron type in the early 18thcentury. However, from circa 1715 sugar nips were fashionable and the tongs did not make their re-appearance until the 1770’s when cast tongs with pierced sections and attractive bright cut engraving became popular. Being so widely produced there are many examples of the standard patterns, especially Old English and Fiddle patterns, therefore the market tends to revolve around decorative examples or rare and unusual marks. Small examples were supplied with cased sets of teaspoons in the first half of the 20thcentury for serving sugar cubes. Spoons, on the other hand, are typically much smaller in size and have a round bowl-shaped cavity that allows them to scoop up and move food or other materials more easily.

For instance, a shovel can be used to dig holes or scoop soil, while a spoon can be used to stir a pot of boiling soup or scoop out food from a container. Recently, Dr. David Shlosberg has discovered that the true name for these implements in the 18th Century was tea tongs - his findings can be read in his book "Eighteenth Century Silver Tea Tongs". There are several names given to this elegant, long handled (usually in the region of 12"+) silver spoon; basting, serving stuffing, gravy or hash. The lasttitle is usually for the extra large bowled examples produced in the mid-18thCentury. They have been manufactured from the late 17thCentury onwards with the first examples being the Canon handled type, and ever since they have followed the form of the standard patterns.Shovels come in a variety of shapes and sizes, from the small hand shovels used in gardening to the large shovels used in construction. It has a wide, flat blade with a sharp edge that makes it perfect for digging in soil and other hard surfaces. Shovels are also used for gardening and landscaping projects, such as digging holes for planting trees, flowers, shrubs, and vegetables.

The ladle shaped sifter spoon can be found in much more varied styles than its sauce, soup and saltcousins. As a dessert course implement it is not only found as part of a canteen, but also as a single entity. It occurs in a rich variety of forms; cast, naturalistic or novelty handles, intricately pierced bowls, etc. It was first produced circa 1770, and has become a much smaller item during the 20thCentury. MOST COLLECTABLE:early examples, cast examples, attractive decoration, unusual form, Scottish & Irish Provincial, rare marks. Butter knives with scimitar shaped blades replaced the spade in the 19thCentury, originally they too would have had turned handles, but by the 1820’s were made in one piece of silver and followed the standard flatware patterns. By the middle of the century they were being produced with resin-loaded handles made of either ivory, bone, agate, mother of pearl or other materials. From this date the handles tended to be carved as opposed to turned. Butter spades tend to be tea to dessert spoon sized, but the earlier butter knives increased in length to table spoon sized, before being reduced by the end of the 19thCentury to teaspoon size. The most common form of silver asparagus tongs are similar in design to oversized sugar tongs with the addition ofa restraining bar, usually held in place by screws, across the centre of the stem. The large blades are often pierced, for straining, and have a lip at the end of one to help hold the spears. Earlier forms of asparagus tongs (bottom example in photo) have un-pierced blades with a corrugated inner surface for improving grasp. This style of server has also been linked with other serving purposes e.g. chops, steak, salad and sandwiches (basically for whatever use the owner can find!). Other less common forms of asparagus tongs include the scissor action type and those with spring loaded blades - these generally date from pre-1800.

Spoons can also be used to scoop and move soil, but are usually not as effective as a shovel for this task.
