Day 121 – The T.C. Tanke “Buffalo” Spoon

This week, I’m dusting off a bunch of my favorite antique spoons, starting with this souvenir from Buffalo, New York.

Made by Buffalo jeweler, Theodore Charles Tanke, the spoon was probably made around 1900. The bowl is a little tarnished, but otherwise it’s in good condition. The detail of the buffalo at the top the handle is exquisite and I adore the font they used for the city name.
