Does this name sound familiar to anyone? It might be more like Went Wellworth, or Wentwellworth I'm not sure. Anyone know if this was a local company, or somewhat local.... as far back as possibly the 40's? Any info would be great, I can't find anything. Thanks

Is that a spoon? If so, it is likely a tourist souvenir from the Wentworth area near Hamilton. Wentworth's mottos is Wentworth 'Well Worth' (the visit).

Yes, it is a spoon (a ladle <ladel?> actually. That makes sense because I'm also finding a lot of really old Hamilton stuff (postcards, newspaper clippings) from 1910's to 40's.

No, here in town. I'm guessing a previous owner of my house lived in Hamilton, maybe, who knows.
