Six Late Victorian Dessert Spoons

It was the fashion in the Victorian era to have vast sets of cutlery for everyday use and special occasions. The best pieces being used for afternoon teas and dinner parties.
These are a set of six silver plated old English design dessert spoons. They would have been owned by a household of reasonable means.
