On the wall, after many years (photo heavy)

After being in storage for many years, my spoon collection from around the world is now up on the wall in the dining room. The "rack" is from about 1970, and was made in Pakistan.


I stopped "collecting" when I ran out of room, but in addition to "family heirloom" spoons, there are spoons from:
Opatija
Holland
Berlin
Lisbon
the Navajo nation
the American Bicentennial
Stanford University
Gibraltar
Switzerland
Kansas
Paris
Belgrade
Angels Camp, CA
Prague
1984 Olympics
Bear Valley, CA
Table Mountain, South Africa
the Smithsonian Institution
New Orleans
Scotland
Egypt
Russia




a few favorites:
antique Egyptian spoon with "hidden compartment"




amber and silver spoon from Russia



"teapot" silver spoon
