Here's a Very Unusual, Hand Wrought Spoon made by World Famous Frank Patania Sr. He crafted this spoon of Sterling Silver and Turquoise, and applied an R monogram to it. Someone suggested that the spoon was made for a child. Whatever the case, it was made by one of the most well known, and well documented Master Silversmiths of the 20th century. It is stamped with the Thunderbird stamp only, as was his practice in his early years of smithing. It is also stamped Sterling.
This Handsome Spoon is 5 1/2" long, and weighs 34.4 grams. The Turquoise is approx. 12mm by 15mm.
Condition is Vintage Excellent.
Jewelry: Antique & Collectible. Native American, Mexican, Scandinavian, Modernist, Costume,
