These are a pair of delicate little Scottish teaspoons, with the lovely Thistle hallmark on them. They have a wonderfully positive motto engraved on the ends which reads "Reach of higher things" and the crest (see pictures). They show some signs of wear to the tip of the bowl commensurate with age, but their allure is not at all compromised by this
