CANADIAN MONUMENT SPOON EXHIBIT
I do not have as many Canadian spoons
as I do US spoons, so this exhibit is much smaller.
all spoons are sterling
1. cute demi with oar shaped handle with wire windings with an
embossed bowl of the Sebastapol monument in Halifax, N.S.
Possible manufacture is J. E. Ellis -but slightly different mark
2. nicely enameled stem with a gold washed bowl featuring the Champlain
monument in Quebec. registered in '05
3. nicely enameled indian handle featuring an embossed bowl of the
South African monument in Montreal. registered in '03
4. female stem holding aloft an enamel shield with an embossed picture
of the Champlain monument in the bowl.
5.hand made twisty handled spoon with finial showing the Prince
of Wales tower.
Views of the Champlain monument in Quebec. Note the faulty manufacture
of the right spoon where the handle solder destroys the top part of the
I hadn't even noticed this flaw until I created a big picture.
The Samuel de Champlain monument is one of the most imposing Quebec
monuments dedicated to the man who explored the region. There are also
other monuments to Champlain in Canada
The indian handle on this spoon is very well done (wish I had a 'six
pack' like this guy)
The South Africa monument in Montreal is dedicated to the Canadians who
fought alongside the British in the Boer War.
Sculpted by George William Hill, it sits on the northern edge of Square
Dorchester in Montreal
Nicely engraved Prince of Wales tower finial in Halifax
This 26' high and 72' diameter round tower was originally built in 1796
by Capt. James Straton and later modified by Edward, Duke of Kent
as a fortress and storage facility
