This 5 5/8" long, weighty, 1.1 T. oz., sterling silver souvenir spoon portrays a number of images connected with the Civil War "Battle of Lookout Mountain."

The center of the handle features a number of soldiers climbing a hillside slope. The end of the handle shows a bust of "Joseph Hooker," the general in command of the operation. The lower portion of the handle reads, "Lookout Mt., Battle Above the Clouds, Nov. 24, 1863." The bowl shows a panorama of the mountain "from the Tennessee River."

The backside illustrates the "Ruins of the Craven House," "Point Hotel," and "Lulah Falls." Stamped "Sterling," it is without a maker's mark, but the quality of the die, strike, and finish points to an established, capable, manufacturer.

The condition is mint. There is no visible wear; all detail remains crisp and sharply defined. The bowl is well-shaped and free of burrs, dings, or dents. The finish is nicely patinated.
