Calling on geniuses

What kind of knife is this? Inez would have been about three. And the marks are attributed to both a jeweler in Brooklyn and a silversmith in NY, if that helps with anything.

It looks like a flat handled master butter knife, but because it has a rounded (paddle) blade, I more likley a flat handled personal butter spreader. If
i knew how big it was, I could be more sure. if she was 3, it might be a little early for a master!
Maybe a gift to the mother for her baby's graduation from the high chair.
