SALE This is is a wonderful High Relief Sterling Silver Souvenir Spoon from Jackson, TN, with a Robed Female Graduate holding her Diploma, and a beautiful picture of one of the buildings, perhaps the Bell Tower from the University. I could not make out the design without lightly polishing it, and before, I believe it is probably what was Southwestern Baptist University, which was later renamed Union University according to what I read. I didn't realize it evolved from 4 different learning institutions, and I may not be correct on this building, but the SWBU that is divided on either side of the bell tower, led me to this conclusion. The back of the spoon has a script monogram of "W M" and the lady who owns this spoon, now in her late 90's has a last name that begins with M, so this may be hers, or a family member's. I love that you can even see the detail of her hairdo in the back underneath her graduation cap, and the long flowing robe! The spoon is 5 1/4" long.
I did have to lightly polish it, but I didn't want to remove all the patina since many folks like it just that way. If you want it to shine more, it certainly should, because it was black before I started, and this is just what a little non-abrasive paste did with a soft cloth. I mentioned the lady who owns this is in her late 90's, and has had to move to a skilled nursing center. The profits from her sales help with her day to day care that is so important for her. Your purchases are much appreciated, and you get a treat as well!
I am always happy to combine purchases to save you on shipping, so please be sure to let me know if you are interested in other items I have listed. There's more silver and jewelry from this same estate, so please take a look. She loved jewelry as much if not more than silver, so there's plenty to come, and it will take me a long time to get it all on.

Thanks so much for shopping with me, and God Bless You! May we honor Him in all we say and do!
