Using two different pieces of Victorian fiddle pattern cutlery (both with London marks but different dates and makers) it has been professionally worked to include a central joint that allows the bowl to pivot up and down.

I have shown this piece to a number of dealers and professionals but so far no one has been able to guess its precise function. Can the ATG readership do better?
