These days, when you want an olive, or a pickled baby eggplant, or a canned onion or whatever, you fish around for it with a fork, pinning it against the wall of the jar and trying to roll it up towards you, a frustrating and often messy adventure. Once upon a time, however, people had CLASS. Back then, they would reach for this elegant and strange tool. A long handle allows you to reach into the depths of the tallest jars. A gaping slot in the bowl of the spoon holds the olive and allows the excess oils or sauce to drip away. And the two prongs at the end, that make it look rather like a snake in dire need of dentistry, allow you to gently separate a dense mass of olives or whatever, single one out, and roll it into the bowl of your spoon. Genius!!

This pattern is the Holmes and Edwards line called "Carolina." The patent marks dates to 1903, but the pattern was discontinued in 1914, so this piece comes from anywhere in there. The pattern features a beautiful design of a basket of flowers, out of which are growing two stalks or vines of leaves and flowers. The design is echoed on the back of the handle by a little bow.

In amazing condition for being nearly 100 years old. I've left the tarnish, and there are a few fine scratches over all from gentle use and storage. No plate loss that I can find. Table ready and absolutely beautiful. At replacement places, these sell for nearly $30!

Just over 8 inches long.

Because of the vintage, well worn nature of silverplate, all silverplate is sold as is.
