Antique Mermaid & Shell Chicago Silverplate Estate Spoon
This gorgeous antique travel souvenir spoon is done in a silver plated metal and has a real scallop shell for the bowl. The handle has a detailed design of the beautiful double tailed nude mermaid. The design looks very Art Nouveau. The shell bowl reads SOUVENIR OF CHICAGO, ILL. The bowl is hand painted with a floral design in blue, green, brown and yellow colors and the lettering is in black. The back of the handle has a cattail design. The spoon measures about 5" long by about 1 15/16" across the shell bowl. Very good antique condition with light age appropriate wear including a little wear to the silver plate on the high points. The enamel painting is in surprisingly good condition. The shell has natural irregularity to the shape. Perfect for the Illinois collector or anyone who enjoys spoons. You will treasure this!!!
