Souvenirs

Souvenirs of a trip-what could be more fun? Our ancestors enjoyed the same thing and souvenirs were made for almost every location. Most of the souvenir pottery and porcelain pieces of the nineteenth century were made in England or Germany, even if the picture showed a North American scene. In the twentieth century, the souvenir china business seems to have gone to the manufacturers in Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong, England, and America. Another popular souvenir item is the souvenir spoon, made of sterling or silver plate. These are usually made in the country pictured on the spoon. Related pieces may be found in the Coronation and World's Fair categories. Many pieces are from the mid-twentieth century. M.W. Galt Bro & Co. made the first souvenir spoon in the United States in 1889, which started a rush for collecting silver flatware that continues today.
