Souvenir Spoon- Sterling Silver Ocean Park, California Bathhouse Ca. 1905 For Sale
STERLING SILVER SOUVENIR SPOON
Ocean Park, California
~ITEM DESCRIPTION~ Here is a great collectible sterling silver souvenir spoon with an unusual theme, from Ocean Park, CA, over 100 years old.-
The spoon is "5-o'clock" spoon size, 4-1/2" long. The spoon is stamped "STERLING" on the back of the handle, along with the maker's mark "Jos. Mayer & Bros," a company that made sterling silverware for a very short time right at the beginning of the 20th century.. The design in the bowl and handles is in raised lettering and design (probably cast), with the name "BATH HOUSE" and "OCEAN PARK, CAL" surrounding a raised picture of the Bath House in the center of the bowl. The front of the handle has raised scenes including the state seal (with "Eureka" on it);Mawona, which I think is the giant redwood with a tunnel through it; a pennant with a bear on it, the state name, and a few other little hard to identify things. . The back has the Los Angeles Courthouse; Carmel Mission, and "Gold Discovered Sutter's Mill", What more could you want short of a bust of Arnold Schwarzenegger.

~CONDITION~ Fine. No damage I can see, Shows signs of slight use on the silver. Has a natural dark patina, can easily be cleaned if you wish.
~PAYMENT, SHIPPING, PACKING MATERIALS~ As you probably know, the wise rulers of have recently decreed that payment via their own company, PayPal, must be made available for ALL items sold on . PayPal will be happy to accept your credit cards and echecks. I am not allowed to list other acceptable methods of payment, but recent info on the site says that if a buyer emails me wanting to pay using a method other than PayPal, (and that method is acceptable to me) they may use that method .
Shipping in the USA: The US Postal Service just gave us a huge price increase in nearly all package services. The current postage cost from Northern Indiana to your door will be displayed near the top of this sale page.
Foreign Shipping- Most packages under 4 pounds (about 1700 grams) are best shipped First Class International, the cheapest possible service. However, the recent price increases on all foreign shipping using FCI have increased enormously to all countries, even Canada. In most cases prices are DOUBLE what they were. Flat-rate box and envelope prices also had huge increases.
I ship next business day.Try not to be shocked by the prices- sellers are not trying to make money on postage, just need to cover their USPS costs plus cost of packaging materials.Cost also has to include the new 10% postage & handling by onall seller's total shipping cost.
