$36.00

Featuring a finely rendered portraiture of a Native American in a squatting position, this souvenir item is unusual in that it is a citrus spoon rather than the typical teaspoon.

Made by Durgin, whose "D" emblem appears on the backside, along with "Sterling" and "Pat. Apd. For," it measures 6" long and weighs .8 T. oz.

The piece is well-crafted, with a sculptural quality to the detailed, high relief, imagery that includes a box turtle at the join between the handle and bowl and the word "Saratoga" in raised letters midway on the handle. The backside is plain save for the above referenced marks.

The bowl has a wide flange edge, pointed tip, and has a satin surface with a portion of an original gold finish.

It is in very good condition, retaining clear design elements and an even finish. The bowl is free of dents or bends.
