Old Sterling United Fruit Spoons

Hello,
In 1992 I inherited an old spoon collection from my Grandmother who was born in 1897. She said her Mother collected spoons and various boyfriends brought them to her.
In this collection are 8 sterling "United Fruit Company" spoons. They are in really good condition. Does anyone know how old they are or about when they were made?? They are very small spoons measuring just under 4 1/2 inches long. Each spoon has 7 different hallmarks on the back handle.
Thanks for your help

I have an udate, they are jam spoons and NOT sterling but silver plate, probably given away as promotions.
I will be listing these on ebay very soon. thanks

Re: Old Sterling United Fruit Spoons

did you list these jam spoons on ebay? I would be interested in buying them to give to my children/grandshildren. My father worked for United fruit company from the late 1920's to 1965 when he retired.
Many thanks
