Antique 1918 Sterling London Souvenir Spoon
What a gorgeous Edwardian era spoon! It is made of sterling silver and the handle reads London in fancy openwork letters. The L is so fancy, it almost looks like a G. The spoon measures about 4 3/4" long by slightly over 7/8" across the bowl. The weight is about 14.6 grams. It has London England hallmarks of an uncrowned leopard head, a left facing lion passant (for sterling), and the letter C (date mark). It is signed with the initials CS FS with a star in between which is the mark of CORNELIUS SAUNDERS & FRANCIS SHEPHERD. On the back of the bowl, it is monogrammed with superimposed initials CPA or PCA - I'm assuming the A is for the last name as it is engraved differently than the other tow letters. Good antique condition with light age appropriate wear. There is a nice warm dark uneven patina (tarnish) to the sterling that we have left untouched. Perfect for the travel souvenir collector or the United Kingdom collector. You will treasure this!!!
