This antique gold washed sterling spoon by Whiting Mfg. in the 1885 No. 1 pattern is in excellent condition. The entire spoon is washed in gold. The back of the bowl is monogrammed Hartford 1890 while the front of the bowl has a fancy script of what appears to be DJC. This demitasse sized spoon is 4 1/8" in length and weighs 7.4 grams.
I've always had an interest in souvenir spoons. Whether antique, vintage or more modern, souvenir spoons are fascinating with history, geography and the life an times of the people it depicts. I must say my knowledge of history and places has improved substantially adding these wonderful pieces on my site here at Ruby Lane as I research these spoons. I am proud to say that Silver by Patrick does have the largest selection of souvenir spoons on Ruby Lane!!
