Help needed to identify a spoon

Hi
I am new to this collecting area and would much appreciate help in identifying what this spoon was for. I picked it up as it was a bit of a mystery to me. Hallmarked Sheffied 1927-28, I realise that this spoon falls near the bottom of the range of spoon collecting, but I would love to know what its use was. It is 110mm in length. From looking at the net it seems to owe something in design to the older mote spoons. I did wonder if with the spike , it might be for olives. I dont know if the curve in the handle is just design or if it was to hook onto something. Any suggestions welcomed. Cheers. Huw
