Organized sports were not as popular around the turn of the century as they are now. Consequently we find relatively few spoons depicting sporting events. But for the sports enthusiasts who may wander into this page, I present some interesting sporting themes.
The most popular sporting event shown on spoons is fishing. We find a number of variations of fishes, fishing poles etc.
