The back of the bowl is monogrammed with BLR while the top of the handle has an engraving of 1903. This sterling piece has a retailer mark of CM Harrington.

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!!
