This is a very nice silver plate 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.
It is marked on the front on the bowl Machinery Hall. The bowl is beautifully engraved with the building.
It has a bust of Columbus on the tip of the handle. Under that the handle is marked Worlds Fair.
The back is marked standard.
It measures approximately 4 ¼ inches in length.
The condition is good – there is slight wear as expected with age. It could use just a little more polishing.
