    I received these thru my mother's estate. No idea what they were used for. Quite a long sharp skewer for something like lemon? Interesting tops to them: cupid? dragon body? mummy? royal? warrior?
    Marked "800" and about 5" long.

      This is wonderful information - thanks!!
      Any comments on the theme of the things on the end? Quite peculiar for such a "proper manners" type utensil.

      Merci Vetraio/Kevin !
      Jplamm, I think it is only deco, but not handy at all for a clever implement ; -)
