“Twas the Night Before Christmas” and all through the garage sale, a creature was stirring and it was me. I found this Christmas spoon in the utensil section of the sale. I thought to myself, that I better look through the silverware, just in case there was a sterling silver piece in there. And sure enough, there was this spoon. I flipped it over and saw the word, “sterling” on the back of the handle. The price tag read 50 cents per piece. I bought this cute spoon.
Gorham Christmas Spoon.
It is a souvenir spoon that is 4.25 inches long, weighs 15.41 grams. The marks on the back of the handle are the word sterling, a lion (for sterling), anchor (made in Birmingham), and a G (Gorham’s maker’s mark).

Since, it is a Gorham sterling silver piece; it is worth more than an unknown maker’s spoon would be worth. I sold it on 11-17-13 for $19.00 plus shipping. That’s a nice profit of $15. Be sure to look through those utensils at sales.
