Day 127 – The Edna Spoon

This spoon isn’t a souvenir of a place, it’s a souvenir of a person. There are no manufacturers marks on the spoon, other than .925, so dating it is difficult, but it’s probably from the early 20th century.

The engraving on the handle reads “Edna,” but which one, where, and when she lived is completely lost to time. 
Maybe it once belonged to the great Edwardian actress Edna May. Or perhaps to writer of Show Boat, Edna Ferber? Or it could have been a gift to Edna St. Vincent Millay, the third woman ever to win the Pulitzer Prize for poetry? 
Or maybe it just belonged to plain old Edna, who was special because she had a spoon with her name on it.
