Ca1905 Sterling Silver Santa Claus / Christmas Figural Handle Souvenir Spoon For Sale
Beautiful and very rare, ca1905, Sterling Silver, Santa Claus / Christmas / 'Twas The Night Before Christmas, Figural Handle Souvenir Spoon with a wonderful, double sided figure of Santa Claus descending a chimney to deliver his toys!!
We must mention first that this Spoon is an original, ca1900 example of this wonderful Christmas Spoon - manufactured by the Gorham Silver Company at the turn of the 20th century - it is NOT one of the mid to late 20th century reissues that can be found regularly on - this example has no numerical designation associated with the maker's mark and the casting is MUCH crisper and more highly detailed than the later reissues!!
This outstanding, Figural Handle Souvenir Spoon measures approx. 4 1/2" long and has a figure of Santa Claus about to descend into a chimney at the top of the handle. Below the chimney there are holly leaves and below the leaves there are Christmas bells. The lower portion of the handle features text that reads "'Twas The Night Before Christmas. The bowl of the spoon features a wonderful image of Christmas Stockings "hung by the chimney with care". The Spoon is marked Sterling and carries the hallmark of the manufacturer - The Gorham Manufacturing Co. of Providence, Rhode Island. As stated above there are no numerical pattern numbers associated with the maker's mark as is found on later issues of this wonderful Souvenir Spoon.
This very rare and very beautiful, Sterling Silver Christmas / Santa Claus, Figural Handle Souvenir Spoon is in excellent condition - crisp and beautiful - strongly cast with no significant wear even to the highest spots. We have not cleaned the spoon but offer it here in "as found" condition with light age patina (the spoon will certainly shine up beautifully if the buyer wishes to do so).
A beautiful and very rare, ca1905 Sterling Silver, Santa Claus / Christmas / 'Twas The Night Before Christmas, Figural Handle Souvenir Spoon and a fantastic addition to any collection!!!

Important Notes about Shipping Charges:
The amount quoted for Shipping & Handling is calculated by and is equal to the EXACT amount charged by the Post Office plus a $1.00 "packing fee" - the $1.00 fee is our only compensation for the virgin packing materials we use on all of our professionally packaged boxes as well as our cost for the salaried help that does most of our packing - as I am sure you can see, we make NO profit on the Shipping charges and, in fact, our costs are usually greater than the $1.00 fee. Please contact us if there are any issues regarding the cost of shipping.
