Day 184 – The Rebus Spoon

Today’s spoon, made by Eugene L. Deacon of Denver, Colorado, features a rebus of a city in a state that’s celebrating its 127th birthday* today. 

The spoon itself doesn’t have a date on it, but since Deacon only had his jewelry business from 1900 to 1912, that makes it at least 105 years old. 

Here’s a closeup of the bowl of the spoon:

The back of the spoon is illustrated with many of things this state was known for at the time, like cattle raising, plowing, and mining.

*Spolier alert: It’s Pocatello, Idaho!
