World War 1


General and Admiral Spoons

This interesting set of six World War l General/Admiral spoons was issued by Caron Bros.

Rainwater identifies them as a very small manufacturer of metal products located in Montreal, Canada. She states that they were in business from 1901 - 1931, so I am assuming that these spoons were issued sometime after WWl.

These spoons are silver plated and to my knowledge were not made in sterling silver.
