This is a silver powder spreader (I don't know if this is the right English name?) from my grandmother. On the third photo you can see the hallmarks. First (left) I think a Minerva head, the middle one is a Lion passant as a Dutch silver standard mark after 1814-1905) and the right mark I can see a N which I believe stands for 1847.
But I'm not so familiar with reading marks. If there are needed more photos I can change of course. Who can help??

    Was this used for sugar? My grandmother had one but round; she used it for sifting sugar into her cup.
