      Can you read any of the markings on the back? We would need the sizes to help too. Pic one looks like a set for a baby. Those were popular in the 50's , maybe even before, no I'm sure before that too. This set looks pretty old to me due to the size of the spoon. That may have nothing to do with it tho. I'm not sure. You can click edit and add the markings and picks of the backs.

      And I just wonder if the piece with the chain was to hold on a bib. Many of these were silver, many were also silver plated.

      If this is a child's set, then I agree the chained pieces are bib clips.
      Would be nice to have measurements and pictures of any hallmarks.

      All the pieces have a K engraved on them thanks for your patience

      The maker is the firm Nussbaum & Hunold (Benjamin Nussbaum and Walter Hunold), Providence. RI, around 1920.
      Short lived partnership of Walter Hunold.

      Bib clips were used to hold a napkin in place around a child's neck to serve as a bib. They were also sometimes called napkin hangers.
      Gothic letter is more likely ‚‚H‚‚ (the straight vertical line on the right consistent with H, letter K would have it fractured).
      Needs good cleaning, do not use abrasive, just be patient.

      Nice it's definitely an H grammys maiden name was harbison and seems lots of silver items found have the same H engraved I will not clean it on my own looks to fragile.

      Sweet! I'm sure you can use some silver polish with a gentle cloth. If you however think it's too harsh, line a pan of water with aluminum foil. Fill with water and boil. Lower the silverware and add plenty of baking soda, like three four table spoons. I'm sure they'll come out much nicer.
