This old sterling spoon is a tribute to the fourth California mission founded by Father Serra. The inside of the bowl has a beautiful scene of the mission including the six bell campanili and the very small palm trees that line the walkway. Along the top edge it reads; San Gabriel Mission 1771. The front of the handle depicts a cluster of California oranges within the scrolled edge. The back of the handle has two flowers that might be orange blossoms with a delicate flowing detailed edge. Also on the back is the word Sterling as well as a single “S” which I have not identified.
It measures just slightly more than 5” long and is in very good condition with minor wear.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
