Vintage Measuring

Does anyone know what a DES. measurement is on a vintage measuring spoon?

I have a vintage measuring spoon with three measurements. The first one says TEA., second one says, DES. and no measurement for the third. I'm puzzled as to what the DES. stands for. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
