A very good quality, French copper, double ended, dessert spoon and straining spoon. This piece is stamped 'J. JACQUOTOT 97 RUE DE GRENELLE PARIS' to the centre of the handle and it dates from c.1860. It is also stamped with a large number '2'. Originally these utensils would have been coated in tin, for use, but this has now been removed, revealing the copper beneath. The dessert spoon would also have been used as a measure and it is quite unusual to find one of these implements with a straining spoon to the one end. This example is very well made, from a heavy gauge of copper, and it is in excellent condition.
