This old sterling spoon is beautifully etched in the bowl and it has an elaborate handle. This was a souvenir of the Fernbridge bridge which I believe was erected in 1911 over the Eel River in Northern California. The concrete bridge is shown with a few small buildings in the foreground and a row of trees in the background. I believe the handle represents one of California’s noted redwood trees. Both the front and the back of the handle are heavily detailed.
The back of the handle is marked with the word Sterling and a hallmark. There are three images, the first is a crown and second is either an “M” or a “W” within a shield and the last appears to be an animal, perhaps a lion so it could be the hallmark of the Watson Company of Attleboro Massachusetts.
It measures about 6” long and is in very nice condition with minimal wear.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
