    Silver?? Pewter? A first glance it appears to be an ornate, flattened
    spoon.

    Its not a spoon it's very thin and easy to bend. I don't think it's silver either. No markings of any kind.

    My first thought was half of a powder flask

    It looks like it might have been a decorative spoon from the 1950's. My grandmother had one very similar to it. There was a spoon and fork that hung on the wall. Hers even had the little dotted outline like that one.

    Well I think you got it. I cleaned it up a bit with baking soda. Upon further review I do believe it is silver. Here is a pic of it cleaned.
