Day 142 – The Ceylon Spoon

This silverplated spoon is from the country formerly known as Ceylon and was made by Australian silversmith, Stokes and Sons. 

On February 4, 1948, the British Colony of Ceylon became an independent country and part of the Commonwealth. It retained the name “Ceylon” until May 22, 1972 when it gained independence as a republic and has been known since then as “Sri Lanka.”
Unsure how old this spoon is, but I’m guessing maybe late 1950s/early 1960s?
