Souvenir Spoon from the Boston & Maine Railroad. Sterling silver baggage tag souvenir spoons were made in the early 1890s for travelers to buy as a memento of their rail trip. The spoons were made by Wendell Mfg. Co. The handle is shaped like a leather strap and the bowl is the "tag" and stamped in the style of a real brass baggage tag. Usually the bowl is gilded so it looks like it is brass. They measure just a tad over 5-1/2" long. [Thanks to Chris fromTennessee]. Click on the image for a larger version. See past featured Items.
