Antique Sterling Souvenir Spoon, St Cloud, Mn State Seal, By Watson, C. 1890:
Sterling souvenir spoon by Watson Co (Attleboro, MA), c. 1890
The top of the spoon reads "L'Étoile de Nord" (The Star of the North - MN State Motto)
Beneath that is the MN State Seal (pre-1971)
Beneath that is "Minnesota," reading horizontally
Beneath that is "St Cloud," reading vertically
On the back is the the earliest known Watson Co hallmark (Crown, W, Lion Passant), and "Sterling"
It is in decent condition, given its age. I cleaned it with mild cleaner; you might have better luck with Tarn-X
