HISTORY OF SOUVENIR SPOONS
souvenir spoons has been a popular hobby for many Americans since the
late 1800s when this European fad swept the nation.Souvenir
spoons grew out of the birth of leisure tourism in Europe around the
mid 1800s. Wealthy Americans on a Grand Tour of Europe brought home
these souvenirs marked with the names of cities and some of the
famous landmarks they had seen.The
first souvenir spoons produced in the United States were products of
well-traveled silversmiths. The inaugural souvenir spoon was produced
in 1889 by Galt & Bros of Washington D.C. It featured a profile
of George Washington and was created to mark the 100th anniversary of
his presidency. It was shortly followed by the Martha Washington
interest in souvenir spoons suddenly exploded. At the end of 1890,
there were only a handful patented or in production in America.
Around half a year later, hundreds of souvenir spoon patterns were
being produced to commemorate American cities and towns, famous
people, historical events and significant events of the time.The 19th century was a time of immense growth
in the United States' economy. It was the age of industrialization
with the rapid acceleration of technology and the invention of mass
production techniques. The production of souvenir spoons became more
efficient and the volume of goods increased.But the mania was short-lived, by the advent
of World War One the appetite for souvenir spoons had waned and by
the end of the war it had almost disappeared.
it is once again a niche hobby. Embellished spoons at tourist
attractions are a familiar sight and hundreds of spoons change hands
at sales around the world
