Antique Edwardian Sterling Silver Souvenir Spoon Floral Front Chicago Ill Paye & Baker

Dating to the early 1900s may I offer this silver souvenir spoon by Paye & Baker. Featuring a huge 3D floral at the top the bowl of the spoon depicts the Government Building in Chicago, Ill. No monogram. The strike both back and front is crisp and has incredible detail.

Condition: Being vintage, there are light marks of use, storage and time (as well as some dust particles showing in my pictures). The patina is wonderfully warm and I try to only lightly polish for photos, the main polish I leave to the new owner. There are no major defects like dings, dents or ugly blemishes that might spoil the beauty of the silver.

Metal Content: Sterling Silver

Hallmarks: P&B Sterling

Size: Length on a straight line is 5-1/4"; width at the bowl is 1-3/16".

Weight: 29 Grams

Final Comments: If I had to have just one souvenir spoon for Chicago - this would be IT!

NOTE: St. Louis is headquarters to one of the best consignors to my shop. They take in a lot of silver flatware and hollow ware as part trade for sale of their jewelry. Some of the pieces are wonderful and I want to save as many as I can from being scrapped so I will be offering as many silver items as possible. 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.

Buy with Confidence. Robins Nest Midwest has the highest rating a shop can attain on Ruby Lane.
