    This beautiful yet bizarre little 5 inch spoon commemorates, in robust detail, the Great San Francisco Fire (which resulted from an earthquake) on April 18, 1906. Note the buildings, waterways, destruction and billowing smoke. There was always meaning and memory in these little souvenirs.

      Amazing. This spoon is from when? 1920s?

      The silver mark would indicate that it was produced by the Watson & Newell Co., that was in business between 1895-1920. Since the fire was in 1906, We are assuming it came out between 1907 and 1920. That's as close as we can get!
