Submitted for your consideration this evening is this sterling silver Seattle World's Fair (The Century 21 Exposition, held in 1962) souvenir spoon, produced by Bell Trading Post of Albuquerque, New Mexico. Bell Trading Post was a division of Sunbell Corporation, and had been in business since 1932, producing sterling silver, turquois, copper and nickel silver jewelry, plus souvenir spoons. This spoon measures 4 3/16" long, by 15/16" widest bowl width, weighs .37 troy ounces, and appears to be in excellent condition for its age, with very little surface wear from polishings. It has no monograms, engravings or removals, and would make a great addition to any collection of antique sterling souvenir spoons or Century 21 Expo memorabilia.
