This is a very nice and hard to find souvenir spoon from the 1893 Columbian Exposition World’s Fair held in Chicago. This spoon commemorates Columbus’s discovery of the new world in 1492 and honors the Spanish monarchs King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella who financed the expedition. The spoon was manufactured by Gorham and is unusual in its design and use of the Spanish language.

It is marked on the front – LA Reina Ysabel, 1492 1893, F Y.

The back is marked RECUERDO, DE LA ESPOSITION DE CHICAGO.

The back is marked sterling, hallmarked and registered 742.

There is a monogram engraved on the back of the spoon which is very intricate and it is difficult to make out the initials.

It measures approximately 4 ¼ inches in length.

It weighs approximately 10.5 grams.

The condition is good – there is slight wear as expected with age. It could use just a little more polishing.

Item ID: RS-62
