This is a gorgeous sterling spoon with an enameled handle of multi colored Maple leaves on a white background with blue border. The bowl is engraved in script Porte Au Baril which is Ontario, Canada. More info below on Porte Au Baril thanks to Wikipedia. The spoon is 5 1/8" in length and weighs 16.1 grams.

Pointe au Baril was named after the barrel on the point that originally (1870s) marked the treacherous entry to the main channel from the open water of Georgian Bay. Early fur traders from Penetanguishene apparently lost a canoe near the point. Their canoe included a barrel of whiskey that was found by stranded traders the next spring. After a drinking spree the barrel was left on the point as a beacon. French mariners were soon calling it Pointe-au-Baril. Later this marker was improved to include a lantern in the barrel that would be lit by the first fisherman returning inland to light the way for the rest of the boats.
