American sterling silver souvenir spoon by Joseph Mayer & Bros., Seattle, c.1900. This interestingly detailed spoon has a myriad of California motifs on both sides of the handle: The State Seal of California, The Cliff House, Wawona or Big Tree, Gold Discovered 1848 Sutter's Mill, State Capitol, Poppies, The Bear Flag, Carmel Mission, oranges and grapes. However, the best feature of the spoon is in the bowl, which has wonderfully embossed view of the San Gabriel mission from Los Angeles, Cal.

Weighing 31 grams, this especially desirable spoon is 5 3/4" long. The back of the bowl, near the handle, has an ornate, period script monogram "F".

Monogrammed as described above, the soft, warm, original finish is present, with no buffing or machine polishing.

The excellent original condition and clear detail, with no removals, repairs or alterations, make this an especially attractive offering.
