Here's a jump start to a souvenir spoon collection, or a great deal for sellers of souvenir spoons. This collection comes in a nice, lined, wooden display case with a glass door. There are a few scratches on it that probably would be remedied with some Old English Scratch Polish. The case measures 12.75" wide and 16.25" tall. It has holders for 36 spoons. It comes loaded with 32 souvenir spoons.
Most of the spoons appear to be silverplated. Five are marked EPNS for electroplated nickel silver, and one appears just to be silver tone. Two are marked Made in Holland 90.
