Brand Etsy

This is a wonderful sterling silver Indian head handled souvenir spoon. The bowl of the spoon is gold washed and engraved with text that reads Belle Isle Detroit and with a depiction of the Belle Isle park. The handle has a raised image of a Indian Chiefs head. The back of the handle has the mark of the Alvin Corporation of Providence, RI and states Sterling. The spoon measures 5 3/4 in length and weighs 29 grams. The spoon is in very good condition with no pronounced wear, just a couple of tarnish spots on the gold wash bowl.
This is not a common spoon - the Pan American Exposition was held in 1901..
