This is a gorgeous sterling spoon by Norwegian silversmith Thorvald Marthinsen. The handle is gorgeous enameling of the Swedish flag and enameling around Sverige which is Swedish for Sweden. The gold washed bowl is embossed with Mother Svea, a female warrior with a lion. The spoon is 5 1/8" in length and weighs 19.0 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!!
