the handle design is 1803-buffalo hunter-covered wagon,and campfires, train 1903.

The bowl depicts the Festival Hall and central cascades. No description can convey to the mind an adequate idea of the beauty of this wonderful architectural masterpiece designed by Cass Gilbert of New York, Notwithstanding the great size of the building the festive effect is shown in every part. The building was 200 feet in diameter and 200 feet high. The auditorium contained seats for 3500 and a stage large enough for the great choruses of hundreds of voices. The largest pipe organ in the world was part of the equipment.

The spoon is hallmarked sterling as well. The spoon is 5 7/8" long. The bowl is 3/4" wide.
