Day 176 – The Newport News Spoon

On June 25, 1788, Virginia was admitted to the union, becoming the 10th state.

This tiny spoon is from Newport News, Virginia and although there are no makers marks on the back to help narrow down the age, it probably dates back to the early 1900s.

I love the derpy fish at the top of the handle and the etching of sailboats in the bowl. A spoon this fancy has no time for a haunting.
