Over the years I have inherited a few interesting things from deceased relatives. Most of these items are not hard to identify. My grandfathers salt and pepper shakers, my MIL's tea pots (I don't drink tea), a cookie jar from my great grandmother (I do love cookies), some of my grandmothers jewelry etc. These objects were left to me, not actually by the dead relatives, but by the living ones after they had picked through the decedents property, taken the "good" stuff and deemed the remainder unwanted, except of course by me. When my parents die, I will get all the "good" crap too.
One thing left to me purposefully by my grandmother was her collection of miniature things she displayed in an old printers box. Her BIL owned or partnered a printing business, so even the box had special meaning to her. I just always liked miniature things.
The item in the photos, I think came from that same grandmother, although, I am not sure, it might have been from my other grandmother. I wish I had labeled it when I first got it.
Anyways, I don't know what it is. I have tried looking for similar items on the Internet, without luck. My guess would be an antique salt spoon? Do you have any idea what it may be? Thanks.
