The silver fruit spoon, or berry spoon, was introduced in the 19th Century in the UK, with sets typically being ornate in design, featuring chased fruit motifs to the bowl, and often presented in their original boxes. During this period 18th Century table spoons, typically in Fiddle or Old English pattern, were chased by silversmiths to make fruit spoons, however these are not original pieces, and instead are an example of later chasing, a common practice during this time as fashions changed from plainer to ornate.
