A wonderfully designed EARLY SHREVE souvenir spoon. The spoon dates prior to 1894 as it is marked Geo. C. Shreve & Co. After, 1894, items were simply marked Shreve & Co.
We also love the way they applied gold to just the CALIFORNIA medallions - while worn, it is still present. (We have never seen another one with gilt like this!). We also noticed the back of the spoon bowl has indentations that closely align with the Ship and Mountains in the bowl - we believe this to be manufactured this way as similar spoons have the exact same indentations.
Engraved "Lois," the spoon is 6 1/4" long and weighs 33.4 grams.
