LARGE PRESENTATION SPOON
The First Reserve Hospital
in Manila was the military’s
largest and busiest facility.
I have included a ruler and a normal tea sized spoon to help you
visualize the size
This large spoon was custom made and is inscribed with a presentation
message (see below)
The marks indicate that the spoon itself was made in Germany of
800 silver by G.W.
Haven't been able to trace him.
I suspect that the engraving was done locally
This spoon is of relatively light weight considering its size, but the
workmanship is excellent
Engraved "First Reserve Hospital Corp Manila P.I. Jan. 17
Also notice the winged putti on the left
The engraving is well done and reflects the art nouveau style
I am unsure if this was made by a patient to the hospital
or if it was made by the hospital personnel to say 'goodbye' to someone
who was being assigned to another post
or for some other event.
