Regal Stunner of a Spoon Ring! Engraved with an M
This spoon was likely given as a thoughtful gift for a special occasion. Engraved 1914 on one side and an "M" monogram on the front. It is a heavy-weight show stopper. As a ring, it has new life and the opportunity to be a thoughtful gift all over again!
Here are a few highlights from 1914. Wonder what the big occasion was for this spoon's former owner?
