Grand Commandery Knights Templar Colorado Sterling Silver Souvenir Spoon ca 1900
Amazing craftsmanship on the sterling silver souvenir spoon. On the front handle is a miner at rest and below that is the Grand Commandery Knights Templar Colorado seal. On the stem is donkey caring mining equipment and below that is some farming tools and floral design. The bowl has no design. On the back handle is an Indian with a shield and below that is a cowboy riding a horse and shooting a gun in the air. On the back stem are cooking pot over a fire and the portion that says sterling.
I could not identify the makers mark on this spoon. There are some three pictorial marks but there is also some silver tarnish which makes it hard to see each mark. With some careful cleaning and good magnifier glass, these marks could probably be identified.
Dimensions: Length = 13.5 cm, Bowl width = 2.7 cm, Bowl length = 4.3 cm
Condition (7.5/10) Fine Overall. Some signs of wear and patina throughout. On the bowl near the top point is a spot that 2 mm by 1 mm where it looks like some of the shined silver has come off. Other than this spot the handle and stem are in great condition on the front and back.
