Wallace "Chicago Masonic Temple" Sterling Silver Souvenir Spoon
click for more pictures for item 2872f
Measuring 5 7/8" long and weighing .7 T. oz., this teaspoon is replete with Masonic imagery, including a portraiture in the bowl of the massive Temple in Chicago.
The imagery includes a sword, a cross and crown, seeing eye, and the emblematic square and compass.
The most dramatic aspect of the piece is a detailed rendering of the towering "Masonic Temple" built in downtown Chicago in 1892. This is finely detailed and has a gold finish.
Made by Wallace, it is stamped with the company "deerhead with RW&S" emblem and the word "Sterling." It is also engraved "9-24-97" on the handle back.
It is in mint condition, clearly always treated as the commemorative it is and apparently never used as a spoon.
