A very large number of spoons featuring bears are available.
Many of these spoons are from California which is known as the Bear
Others are available from Alaska, Switzerland, mining spoons etc.
This is NOT an exhaustive list
These guys have cute expressions on their faces
All spoons and fork are sterling except the bottom center one
which is copper
The first and third vertical spoons are probably plated. All of the
others are sterling.
Some of these spoons are from the California
Mid Winter exhibition of 1894
and more information is available on that page.
I am not sure if the bear on the left is silver or another alloy. It is
not marked, but shows evidence of hand workmanship.
The spoon appears to have been gold plated at one time, but there are
no identification marks. It was hand made.
