A French feeding or medication spoon in pewter. The hinged lid was to prevent spillage of the contents whilst they were being sipped from the bowl by the patient.
The top of the lid is marked A CARON and also has two circled letter A and C. Bté (Breveté) SGDG is a commonly seen patent mark on quality French products. The spoon is in excellent condition.
