This is a very nice lot of twenty-two vintage souvenir spoons from Italy. I have other good spoon lots listed now, too, from other places.

T are no solid silver spoons in this lot to my knowledge, but t are many brass, some are silverplated, and t are other metals, too. T are some very nice spoons included. They will all arrive clean, but some may need more polishing, if desired.

Please look at the photos and read the description carefully.

They are all between about 3-3/4" and the longest one on the left is about 7" long.

They are all in good condition, but a few have somewhat worn finishes, and that will be noted below.

In no particular order:

Enamel bowl spoon from Naples, some enamel damage near the handle, otherwise fine; Silverplate with gondola on top and "Venezia" (Venice); f our different brass and plated spoons with a Florence crest. These spoons like this were made in large numbers in the mid-1900's for the tourist trade. They were made to look old and imperfect, so please keep this in mind with this type of spoon; Very nice spoon with a porcelain "Roma" Colosseum crest; Three different statue-topped brass spoons stamped Italy; Very nice, well-made spoon with a figural Lion of St. Mark (Venice) on top; Brass spoon with a fully figural horse on top, the symbol of Naples, stamped "Italy" in the bowl;. 7. Silverplated spoon with a Milano (Milan) crest, worn; Old spoon with a Statue of David crest and "Firenze", worn; Shovel spoon with figural goat on top, often the symbol of Capri, and also one with a regular bowl that does say Capri; two silverplated similar spoons, one with an Italy crest and one with a Vatican crest; two brass spoons with rampant lions; spoon with the legendary founders of Rome, Romulus and Remus on top; very nice spoon with a Sorrento crest.
