English silver picked up at a flea market

I picked these two spoons up at a flea market for 10 bucks each. They are hall marked on the back of the spoon and where the silver meets the bone, ivory or celluloid. From what I can find its a walking lion for english sterling, crown for sheffield and I in italics for 1901 and a WH in rectangle for Henry Wilkerson. I don’t know the value or what exactly they were for, Tea? Any help will be appreciated.

I would term them “preserve spoons”. You probably paid about the right price for them. A very similar spoon of the same era sold on Ebay recently for 6 GBP = $8.
