Not sure if you googled it yet, the only thing I can find is an old newspaper ad from 1911 describing the spoon as giveaways when you purched 'Economy Jars'

Like shopblackrock, all I could find on this spoon were pages and pages of Home & Garden, Country Life, Suburban Life, ... 1911 magazine ads for Kerr Glass Mfg. Economy jars. Kerr was giving away 3 of these spoons with every case of jars and 1 with a dozen caps. No doubt the use of the number 1066 was to attract attention for it was in the year 1066 that William the Conqueror invaded England. His descendants resulted in the Plantagenet dynasty that ruled England for over 300 years.

 

Here are examples of the ads:

Surburban Life, July 1911:

House & Garden, July 1911:

http://books.google.com/books?id=7RDnAAAAMAAJ&pg=PA485&lpg=PA485&dq=king+hall+silver+1066&source=bl&...

 

Country Life in America, June 1911:

http://books.google.com/books?id=8GADAAAAYAAJ&pg=PA65&lpg=PA65&dq=king+hall+silver+1066&source=bl&ot...

I just knew this design looked familiar and sure enough I found it. The design was named Orient when patented in 1904 by Holmes and Edwards. Davis and Deibel has an illustration of a Good Housekeeping advert from June 1911 for the Kerr Glass "Economy" Jars, offering 3 "Holmes and Edwards Famous Sectional Plate Silver Tea Spoons" with every case of jars.
