Palm trees were synonymous in the popular imagination with California and Florida at this point in history,

despite the fact that there are over 2600 species of palm trees identified.

This exhibit is just a small sampling of the many palm trees shown on souvenir spoons..

palm tree spoon monkey
The bowl of this spoon has been converted to a monkey shape with very fine chasing workmanship
This spoon is not marked as to silver quality or location, but is hand made and I suspect it is sterling
In any case it is a very unique souvenir spoon.
