Going through a box of old silver spoons with my kid and found these. They say 'Made in Finland' on the back.

Any idea what they're for? I put one of my teaspoons beside for comparison (they're wee).

That fork looks like a serving fork for sliced dill pickles or beets something like that. The tsp looks like an ordinary tiny tsp. Everything's bigger in the Americas. Didn't you know? 13.gif

Probably a good fork for those days when you sit around for hours devouring Lutefisk.
But what do I know, I've never had the pleasure.

For pickles or something yeah. I have coffee spoons as small but don't use them. They're quite pretty.

Quote from Garrison Keillor's book Lake Wobegon Days:

Every Advent we entered the purgatory of lutefisk, a repulsive gelatinous fishlike dish that tasted of soap and gave off an odor that would gag a goat. We did this in honor of Norwegian ancestors, much as if survivors of a famine might celebrate their deliverance by feasting on elm bark. I always felt the cold creeps as Advent approached, knowing that this dread delicacy would be put before me and I'd be told, "Just have a little." Eating a little was like vomiting a little, just as bad as a lot.
