Measures approximately 8 1/4" long, 2 1/2" in diameter across the bowl, weighs 54 grams, and has what I think is a bone handle. It has a teeeeny tiny curved "ARGENT" mark beneath a chevron hallmark, and in doing a little research, I found that this mark was used in Neuchatel, Switzerland, from the 1700's until the 1880's, and the metal is at least 812.5/1000. There is a hairline crack on the back of the handle as shown, but it is intact and sound, and otherwise in very good condition, just in need of a light polishing.
