Hi daniel,
Like to pick your brains again with this little item, cant remember seeing anything like it.
It is 10cm long by 1.5cm wide, has only 1 mark "916/000", could you please tell me something about it.
Thanks,
Harry

Hi Harry,
You've stumped me i'm afraid. It looks a little like a butter spreader, or maybe a salt spoon. My first thought was a cocktail stirrer but its to short for that I think.

I will keep searching and let you know if I find anything.

Best regards
Daniel

Belgian silverware tends to be either 900 or 800 standard, i haven't seen 916 from there before, but I could be wrong.
