I have looked everywhere...

I have looked everywhere and can't find this ladle anywhere could you please help me.

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

It is a beaded soup ladle with roses on the handle it has a S on back with outward arrows on each side. On the front it has writing on the handle which is "ZUR HOCHZEIT VON SCHWESTER CLARA.

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

I really don't know much more except the translation of the words on front stands for "TO THE WEDDING BY SISTER CLARA"

Hello,

Thank you for your patience and the additional images.

This is a later 19th century, Victorian era, German alpacca silver serving ladle that was inscribed and gifted to a bride Clara upon the occasion of her wedding. Alpacca silver does not have a precious metal meltdown value like that of sterling silver.

High sale value for this is $70 on today's market.
