This 5 7/8 inch spoon commemorates the Union forces of the Civil War, with the soldier with musket standing atop a column with a U.S. identification. Cannons, cannon balls, and an eagle with a sword in its talons adorns the bowl. The column that forms the handle of the spoon has a fluted design with garland. The back of the spoon is marked 'Sterling' and 'Pat', indicating a patent, probably granted, and bears a 4 leaf clover mark associated with the Howard Sterling Company of Providence, Rhode Island. The company, founded in 1878 appears to have started making souvenir spoons around 1886, and was out of business by the early 20th century (1902). Some of their dies or designs were later produced by the Roger Williams Silver Company. The piece weighs 29 grams.
