A charming set of silver figural spoons made in Brazil in the 1960s probably for the tourist market. Typically these came in a boxed set of six. There is no set but there is the bonus of an extra spoon with a Carmen Miranda-like figure of a woman with a basket of fruit on her head. In addition to the two spoons with a native woman finial, there is a pineapple, a bunch of bananas, a "fig" fist (gesture is for warding off evil eye), a monkey eating a banana, and gnome figure sitting on a large leaf and smoking a pipe. Th fist, gnome, and monkey finials are in the round; the others are flat backed. The monkey is particularly well made and detailed. The handles are fancy representing foliage , bamboo etc.

The back of each spoon is stamped 900 (silver purity) and has an embossed hallmark. Each is 3 3/8" (8.5 cm) long. Combined weight is 36 grams. They are in excellent condition.
