Antique Sterling ELGIN WATCH FACTORY Spoon - Souvenir of Illinois - Shepard Manufacturing Co Signed
This antique Victorian or Edwardian era spoon is a masterpiece! It is made of sterling silver with a detailed bowl which reads ELGIN NATIONAL WATCH FACTORY and shows the old factory in all its glory. The top of the handle has the Elgin Father Time logo - he has angel wings and is carrying a scythe. The front af the handle also shows City Hall and the Post Office, and humorously reads "Butter Producer" above a cow. The back of the handle shows Lords Park, the Hospital, the Library and corn. The spoon is a teaspoon size and measures just shy of 5 3/4" long by slightly over 1 1/4" across the bowl. The weight is about 25.5 grams. Signed with the initial S inside a circle which is the mark of American maker SHEPARD MANUFACTURING CO. and also marked STERLING L.M. BAUER. Good antique condition with light age appropriate wear including a little roughness to the edge of the bowl towards the handle. You will treasure this fine antique spoon!!!
