spoons....any ideas???

Hi every one,

I have had these spoons forever. I was just wondering if any one would know any thing about them.

I'm pretty sure they are sterling. They are about 9 inches long, have a twisted handle with an encased stone at the end.

Strange little things. lol

Iced tea or mint julep spoons? Without a picture, not much else to add.

I had some, got them from lady cleaning out some things, forgotten what they were for,getting olive out of martini? I don't drink but think they had something to do with a drink. Mine are Mexican silver & have different colored stone in end of each one.I don't see them in hutch but think they are about 4 1/2 in. long. Did they have strawberry in martini for awhile in 70's?Anyway thought they would be good for sugar cubes but never used them for that.

I don't see a mark. The actual spoon part is pretty flat.
thanks....

They are stirrers....like a classy swizzle stick. Likely silver but perhaps not Sterling fineness....more like 800...or maybe coin from Mexican silver coins.
