This is a very nice lot of six antique silverplated souvenir spoons from the Columbian Exposition World's Fair, held in Chicago, Illinois in 1893 .

They are about 5-7/8" long, and all came to me together. They are all marked the same, "Norman Mfg. Co. A1". The bowls are goldwashed, some a little heavier than the others. They are in very good condition with a bit of light scratching and wear, not much.

The fancy bowls are embossed with detailed scenes of:

"Transportation Building"

"Electricity Building"

"The Fisheries Building"

"The Administration Building"

"The Manufactures Building"

"Agricultural Building"

No monograms or engraving.
