Hi,

It would appear to be Brazilian. I'll move the topic to the South American section of the forum.

I have a similar server with a Brazilian 1913 silver coin (500 Reis) and the handle has a crown and a coat of arms :::: I believe these servers have some kind of link with a Brazilian tradition, perhaps in the serving of a traditional Brazilian dish, or some sort of link to the former colonial power of Portugal?

My server is not hallmarked and it is a silver alloy of some sort, lower than 800 :::: Sometimes it helps if people have seen similar pieces though ::::

Hi,
It depicts Rio de Janeiro, a view from Corcovado Mountain with Christ Statue.
There are also ``globe`` of Brazil flag and the star of the coat of arms.
It appears to be sand cast and ``800` as well as overall appearance indicate a vintage souvenir spoon.
Best wishes
