The Plaza Church of Los Angeles, Ca. has a day in 1891, preserved in time, in the bowl of this Gorham Sterling Versailles pattern sterling spoon now a souvenir or memory of a long ago day has been frozen in time just for us! This fabulous re-creation of the church on the plaza has been performed with both acid etching and hand engraving, see the photo supplied of the church from approximately the same time period, the one with the horse & buggy in front, AMAZING, and the one from a much earlier in time, too! 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 those also who long to visit there. The spoon measures larger most souvenir spoons, 5 7/8 inches long and weighs a hefty 29.94 grams, 1.06 oz or 0.96 oz troy; it is standard size teaspoon, and all though large by souvenir spoon standards, it is what you might have expect from the first class company and pattern chosen; the Versailles, a multi cherub motif, by Gorham copyrighted in 1888. A photo of the front page of the period catalog is supplied; see photo 4. The spoon's details are sharp and crisp and it displays no damage, only light scratches which would polish out if so desired. This is a beautiful memento, a wonderful gift and / or great addition to any collection for display or use (what a great conversation starter as a server for mints or nuts, etc. ). (K3128)
