Antique Edwardian (1903) Sterling Silver Enamel Souvenir Spoon - State University at Lawrence Kansas

Dating precisely to 1903, may I offer this souvenir spoon featuring an enamel pennant/flag at the top that reads KANSAS in blue and red enamel and, at the bottom, an etched design of State University, Lawrence in the bowl. The reverse of the spoon features an etched '03 as in 1903! A light gold overlay (vermeil) on the silver completes the look.

Condition: Being vintage, there are light marks of use, storage and time. The patina is wonderfully warm and I try to only lightly polish for photos. There are no major defects like dings, dents or ugly blemishes that might spoil the beauty of the silver. If a high shine is desired, all that’s needed is another polish.

Metal Content: Sterling Silver with a Hallmark of STERLING

Size: 4-1/2" long on a straight line; width at the bowl is 1-1/16".

Weight: 12.4 grams

Final Comments: Just adorable!

FINAL COMMENTS: When I can, I will beat anyone’s price on RL. I want to turn over the silver inventory quickly so I can keep loading in more. St. Louis was a boom city in the 1800s and the silver inventory here is legendary. For those who know, the 1904 World’s Fair held one of the largest competitions in silver design – all the big maker names of the day competed and a lot of the winning pieces stayed in St. Louis after the Fair ended. So keep watching my listings, I never know what I am going to have week to week – all I know is it will be varied, fabulous and deserving of a good home.
