Yale Silver Co.

Shown in the photo are two silver plated bar spoons and an olive ladle marked “Yale Silver Co. A1”. The longer of the two bar spoons measures 6 and 3/4ths inches long and the other 5 and 3/4ths inches. They are in the classic “Windsor” pattern.

The olive ladle is 12 inches long and is in the “Sultana” or “Shell” pattern. I am not certain if this is actually an olive ladle….strainer…spoon…or what. It is an unusual shape, that’s for sure. I could find nothing similar in Noel Turner’s “American Silver Flatware”. I could see it being used in a large, deep olive jar to scoop out olives and drain the brine at the same time.
