PINE CONE SPOONS
There are an estimated 115 different
species of pine trees and as one would expect, each type has slightly
different pine cones.
Furthermore there are male and female pine cones
I have only two pine cone spoons so we will not discuss all the
different types of pine trees or pine cones
As you can see we have two different varieties of pine cones featured
on these spoons.
Both of these spoons were manufactured by the Mechanics division of
and both feature very exquisite die cutting with high dimensionality
The back of these spoons continue the pattern from the front
The bowl of this spoon is engraved Ashland, Wi which is a heavily
wooded area on Lake Superior
I suspect that this is a knobcone pine
The bowl of this spoon is engraved "Chicago"
