Collector Spoons

Antique Navajo hand stamped silver spoon

This is a beautiful old 5" long silver spoon with hand stamped Navajo symbols on the handle and two crossed arrows on the bowl. And before you panic about the shape of the handle tip, please remember that the swastika was a respected symbol in many cultures, including those of Native America, long before it was co-opted by the Nazis. Native Americans called this symbol the whirling log or rolling log and it represented the four seasons, the four sacred mountains, and the four corners of the earth. This spoon dates to the late 19th to early 20th Century, and is remarkably well preserved, with a little tarnish and usage marks to be expected in a 100+ year old silver spoon.

Royal Plate demitasse spoon

This is a dainty little 4-1/2" long silver plated demitasse spoon by Royal Plate Co. I have been unable to discover anything about this company or this pattern, but both the front and back of the handle are decorated. The back of the handle also has a crown mark and is stamped “Royal Plate Co.” Obviously vintage, this spoon is now tarnished but in good condition with signs of usage appropriate to its age. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Mystery solved! A nice lady named Tracie emailed to say this spoon is the Beauty Rose pattern from 1905. She also discovered some history on Royal Plate Co. Click here to read her email. Thank you Tracie!

Antique sterling silver collector spoon

This tiny delicate antique 3-1/2" sterling silver spoon with twisted stem and beautiful open scrollwork handle surely was always intended for collecting because it’s far too fragile for actual use. It weighs almost nothing and the twisted stem is so narrow I can’t imagine how it’s managed to survive all these years without breaking. Stamped “sterling” on the bowl back in tiny almost unreadable letters. Quite patinated, but in incredibly good condition, with only light scuffing on the spoon bowl.

TWA 3-piece place setting

Gone are the days when airlines served full inflight meals on fine china accompanied by scaled-down silver plated utensils such as these. And in this case, the airline itself (Trans World Airlines) is also gone forever. But we’ve got this complete 3-piece set of their silverware for sale! So up, up, and away in a flight of fancy with these outstanding pieces of American aviation history: a 6-1/2" knife, a 6" fork, and a 5-1/4" spoon, all proudly proclaiming “TWA” on the fronts of their handles, not the backs. Backs of the fork and spoon handles are stamped “International Silver Co.” Other than a little tarnish, all three pieces are in very good condition, with only minor usage scratching appropriate to their age. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Cudahy’s Rex A1 bouillon spoon

This is an ornate 5-1/2" silver plate bouillon spoon, the back of which is stamped “Cudahy’s Rex A1”. At the turn of the 20th Century, the Cudahy Packing Company sold a beef extract called Cudahy's Rex Brand Extract of Beef. In many of their print advertisements of the time, they offered teaspoons and bouillon spoons as premiums to customers who sent in a metal cap from a 2-oz or larger jar and ten cents in silver or stamps. The spoons were manufactured exclusively for Cudahy by Wm. A. Rogers, Ltd., and a Cudahy ad from 1904 (see photos) proclaimed them to be “in the latest design, French Gray Finish, and heaver than triple silver plate.” Our bouillon spoon is in remarkably good condition given its antique status. There is minor pitting and scratching in the spoon bowl and additional minor pitting on the back of the bowl, as well as a rubbed place where the back evidently rested against a display stand for who knows how many decades. Great collectible piece of American history. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Rolex-Lucerne silver plated spoon

This 4-1/4" silver plated spoon is one of the famous Rolex advertising spoons produced by Bucherer, the equally famous chain of jewelry stores headquartered in Lucerne, Switzerland. Carl-Frederich Bucherer opened the first store in 1888 and the family-run company is still in business today, headed by third-generation Jörg G. Bucherer as Chairman of the Board. The Rolex spoons, which often have the names of cities where a Bucherer store exists, were given away as free souvenirs at Switzerland hotels where they were placed on the pillow like a mint. This spoon says “Lucerne” on its stem, as well as “Rolex,” “Bucherer,” and “Watches.” The spoon bowl features an engrave sleeping lion. Stem back is stamped “CB 69.” Very good vintage condition with a lovely patina and no dings or dents. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Marquette sterling silver collector spoon

This is an ornate sterling silver teaspoon that says “Marquette” in very fancy beaded letters in the spoon bowl. The spoon measures 5-7/8" in length and its wide stem features a tall climbing vine with hanging flowers, underneath which is scroll work and swirls. Back is marked “Sterling” and has three hallmarks, the first one of which might be a W in an oval, the second one a lion, and the third one definitely an “M”. Excellent condition with no dents, dings, or pitting. We cleaned it up a little to see the markings, but didn’t scrub out the patina that accentuates the flowers. (Click on picture for more images.)

Pecious Moments pewter collector spoon

This is a 4" pewter collector spoon from the Precious Moments Chapel in Carthage, MO. The top of the spoon stem features two of the famous Precious Moments cherubs and the spoon bowl says “Precious Moments Chapel.” Back is marked © Samuel Butcher. Samuel Butcher was a preacher who created the Precious Moments line of figurines in 1978 and built the Precious Moments Chapel in 1989. This spoon is in excellent condition with no dents, dings, or pitting. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Oriental collector spoon

This is an old 4-3/4" silvertone collector spoon whose stem top features two oriental cartouches, the top one in a flower, and the bottom one in a heart. Very thin somewhat rippled stem that appears to have been made that way originally, not after-the-fact damage. There is, however, a small dent to the spoon bowl that looks like the back banged against something sharp decades ago. All in all, a very interesting little spoon! (Click on picture for more images.)

Seven Dwarfs collector spoon

This is a 3-3/4"silvertone collector spoon whose stem top features a sculptured figure who looks like Happy, one of the seven dwarfs in Walt Disney’s classic 1937 full-length cartoon “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.” Or at least that’s what I thought until Ol’ Swaphos scanned this spoon. When we saw the enlargement of the figure’s costume, it looks for all the world like the name “Rocky” is emblazoned across his chest. Rocky?? Who the heck is Rocky?? The only Rocky cartoon character I know of is Rocket J. Squirrel of Rocky and Bullwinkle fame, and whoever this little guy may be, he’s sure not that Rocky! On the other hand, I’ve been looking at these spoons all day under a magnifying glass and my eyes may well be playing tricks on me by now. Maybe those are just dots on the elf’s costume and not letters that spell “ROCKY” at all! I’ll leave it up to you. Whoever this character is, he’s darn cute and his spoon is in great vintage condition with no dents or dings. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Angelfish collector spoon

This 4-3/4" collector spoon features a large diamond cutout at the top of its stem in which an angelfish swims above some tropical sea vegetation. Spoon bowl and stem appear to be stainless steel and the fish and diamond appear to be pewter. Great vintage condition with no dents or dings. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.

Native American collector spoon

This is a 4-7/9" silvertone collector spoon featuring a variety of Native American symbols on its stem and in its bowl. Top features a colorful shield containing three oil wells, so I’m tempted to say this spoon originated in Oklahoma. Stem back is stamped “Japan.” Good vintage condition with no dents or dings, but two tiny spots in the bowl. (Click on picture for more images.) Tell a friend.
