Beautifully ornate silverplated spoon holder, late 1800s or very early 1900s vintage. I love the design here (it's put together loosely, so that the spoon holder wheel actually spins!).
Sadly, it's been dip polished at some point, leaving it stripped of much of the original silver plate. Some parts are dull, others a little too shiny I feel. It looks all right, I guess - but it's not the way it was originally intended to look.
