Cliff House & California Scenes Sterling Vintage Spoon 5 7/8"Add to Wishlist
This 5 7/8” sterling spoon by International silver has just so many historic events going on. The Cliff House as it appeared in 1900 is on the spoon bowl. The Cliff House was started in 1858 and remodeled seven times in its existence. The restaurant is now part of the Golden Gate National Recreation area. In the past, ships have run aground below the cliffs of this structure.
On the top of the handle there is the California bear and Eureka 1849 which indicates the year of the gold rush. The base of the handle shows admission day when California became the 31st state in 1850.
The back of the handle has the state capital. Under that is Wawona which is a town entirely located within Yosemite National Park and has a giant redwood. The estate condition of this spoon is excellent. I would date this spoon to the first quarter of the twentieth century. White Water Antiques tries to bring you the most interesting sterling and silver plate flatware and gifts.
