    Is this worthless?

    I've found out what EPNS means. At first I thought this was sterling; but now I know it's Electro Plated Nickel Silver. These are from Arthur Price & Co. LTD. in Birmingham, England. They look vintage, they're in a nice case with satin lining and the latch is still good. My question is, what are they for and is there any value to them? Are they baby Feeding Spoons or just tea spoons for a special occasion.

    What length are they? I can't tell what pattern they are in your photos. They aren't worth a fortune but they aren't completely worthless either. You have the case, the set is complete and they appear to be in good condition. If you plan to sell them, it's best to figure out the pattern name. Here is a site that may help with the pattern ID- Arthur Price Silver at Replacements, Ltd . You mentioned you think they may be baby spoons, are they small in size? These would be referred to as demitasse spoons if they are. Hope this helps some.

    The spoons are 4 3/8" long from tip to tip. There isn't really a pattern, actually they are pretty plain looking. I'll check the site you sent me and see what more I can find out about them. Thanks for your input.

    I couldn't find them on the replacement site. Thanks again

    If you're willing to ship to the UK, you might get $40. I can't imagine them selling here for more than $15. Good luck!
