This fabulous large teaspoon (Length 6")is obviously an early Souvenir for Omaha, Nebraska. It is superbly fashioned with depictions on the front stem of an American Native Indian (Logan Fontonelle), a Bucking Broncho, and in the spoon part is the Omaha Courthouse. On the reverse is The State Seal, The Auditorium, a Bull and a Pig, and The Union Pacific Bridge with Steam Train approaching. The teaspoon is marked as STERLING, weighs 28grams, and as pictured is in wonderful condition. Looking at the age of the buildings etc I would think this piece dates to the late 1800's or very early 1900's.
