Los Angeles, Ca.'s Plaza Church has a day in 1891, frozen in time for us; preserved in the bowl of a Gorham Sterling's Versailles pattern sterling souvenir spoon and it is being offered here for your consideration. This fabulous re-creation of the church on the plaza has been performed with both acid etching and hand engraving, see the photos supplied of the church from approximately the same time period, its the one with the horse & buggy in front, AMAZING! This beautiful souvenir spoon was dedicated to an event unknown to us, that took place on July 15, 1891; the beauty and meaning this token holds will be appreciate by the millions who know and love the church and its plaza and many more! The spoon measures 5 7/8 inches long and weighs a hefty 29.94 grams, 1.06 oz or 0.96 oz troy. All large by souvenir spoon standards but what you might expect from the first class company and pattern chosen for the spoon, the Versailles pattern by Gorham, a multi motif one, copyrighted in 1888, a copy of the front page of a period catalog is supplied with the photos. The spoon's details are sharp and and crisp and it displays no damage only light scratches which would polish out if desired. This is a beautiful memento, a wonderful gift and / or great addition to any collection! (G123)
