These metal scoops are adorable. They have been painted in green and red colors on a cream background. I am unsure of the date they were made but I believe there is some age to them. They have been used as there is fading to the decoration and there are wear patterns on the handles. The larger of the two has a bit of surface rust on one edge, the smaller doesn't appear to have any rust. The metal is very solid and the handles are firmly in place.
