Chicago World's Fair 1893 2 Different Spoons

Both of these spoons are souvenirs of the 1893 World's Fair that was in Chicago. This is many times referred to as the Columbian Exhibition because it was to celebrate the 400 year anniversary of Columbus finding America. This first spoon shows Columbus and says "Columbus" in a sash. It shows one of his boats next. Then it is marked 149s. It is etched in the bowl "Chicago 1893" and on the back of the bowl "Nell". The back has no design. This spoon is 4-1/4" long x 7/8" wide at the bowl x 1/2" deep. It is marked "U.S. Sterling". This spoon is shown in pictures 1, 2, 3 - 5.

The second spoon has a bust of Columbus at the top with 1492 and 1892. Worlds Fair goes down the handle. The back is plain. This spoon is 4-1/2" long x 7/8" wide x 3/8" deep. It is marked on the back "A.T. Coin Silver Co.". This spoon is show in pictures 1, 2, 6, and 7.

There is some wear to the silver plate spoon on the bowl part of the back. I used a jeweler's cloth to polish these. They probably could use a bit more work. This price is for the pair of spoons.
