Day 16 – The Nashville Spoon

I asked my daughter what state I should feature today and she suggested Tennessee. I only have three spoons from the Volunteer State, so I was sort of surprised when it was the second spoon I grabbed out of the pile.

This one features two poorly painted, but happy looking musicians on top of a platform that says “Nashville.” The bowl reads “Music City, USA.” The maker’s mark on the back is “W.A.P.W. Gt. Britain,” which is the Walter Archibald Parker Watson Company, a huge supplier of souvenir items for the better part of the 20th century.
