3 VINTAGE STERLING SOUVENIR SPOONS HAARLEM, NETHERLANDS

For your consideration I am offering these three vintage sterling silver souvenir spoons. The handle of the first spoon is an embossed replica of an intricate shield that depicts the flag of Haarlem. Above the flag is a kings crown, below the shield is the word "HAARLEM" The backside of the handle is marked GEHA 90. The bowl of this spoon is impressed and embossed with the scene of a windmill. This soon measures 4 ½ inches long. Haarlem is a municipality and a city in the Netherlands, capital of North Holland province. The city is located by the river Spaarne, about 20 km west of Amsterdam and near the coastal dunes. It is the center of a flower-growing district and the export point for bulbs, especially tulips. The second spoon has an embossed replication of the Amsterdamse Poort on its handle. Below the scene of the gateway are the words "AMSTERDAMSE POORT HAARLEM". The backside of the handle has a silversmiths mark with the word GERO and the number 90. The Amsterdamse Poort is an old city gate of Haarlem, the Netherlands. It was created in 1355 and is the only remaining city gate from the defenses of Haarlem. The length of this souvenir spoon is 4 1/2 inches. The third spoon has an embossed replication of the Stadhuis or town hall of Haarlem. Below the scene of the Stadhuis are the words "STADHUIS HAARLEM". This spoon is also 4 ¾ inches long. The back side of the handle on this spoon is also marked with the words GERO and the number 90. These items are fresh out of a local estate I am now liquidating, included in this estate are a few hundred souvenir spoons that I will be listing, see my other auctions for more items from this and other estates that I am now offering.
