Tiffany & Co. 1939 World's Fair Sterling Silver Baby Spoon For Sale
Hand made Art Deco handled sterling spoons by Tiffany& Co. for the 1939 New York World's Fair. The handle is shaped like a long thin 3-sided obelisk (trylon) which was a symbol for the fair. The bowl front is plain and round (Perisphere) and the two objects represented the fair to the world. The enlargement shows the bowl reverse. I suspect that this spoon was of very limited production. Note: this spoon was produced in a large and small version. Both are rare. This one is 4" x 1.25". I do not know if this one is the large or small. My guess is small.
