    Re: 1850's era Silver Opium spoon ?

    Wow !!! Thank you Carolyn for solving this puzzle, I had a gut feeling thats what it was just took a little time. I have read on line that these items are rare so its no wonder none of us knew what it was. DCMatt thanks for looking into it also, I knew that this forum had some sleuths and thought I'd give it a try. Well I am excited as heck about this find..thank you all for helping me out. Cruisin, nice to know your on forum, and thanks for supporting the shop.

    I had no idea the spoon was this small until you posted the pic of the dime with it. After seeing that, and the loop at the end, I agree 100% it is an opium spoon. . . . And we thought all those Victorian "ladies" were wearing chatelaines were for looks! Nice find, Breezie
    Every time I watch Gone With The Wind, I think we're gonna win this time!

    Yes I just wonder if it was not only a fashion statement but served some function for those ladies . . Next time I post a picture I will remember to set a coin next to the item found as it will be easier to determine size. Thanks for responding Breezie. H.H. to you all R.H.
