Listing Detail Tabs

Well over two thousand collectable souvenir spoons collected by my Poppa himself throughout his life. Have sifted & sorted through most of them and they seem to be from virtually all over the world, almost everywhere imaginable and covering almost every major occassion possible, from royal weddings, births, popes, olympics, americas cup etc...

Over a quarter of them are NZ. Have even found one of the late controversial Prime Minister Robert Muldoon.

These have been gifted to me by my grandparents to help raise funds given the fact I was made redundant at five months pregnant, they just wish to help in the only way they can.The spoons have been well looked after, obviously a few of them will need a good clean though.

Unfortunately I don't know too much on the rareness of each spoon, but there is bound to be well sort after pieces in amongst these. Alot of them have the markings of Hansen & Berry, Stuart E.P.A.I, Angus & Coote & Peak ChCh. Also lots with markings I do not understand, or written in another language.

Only wish to sell as a whole at this stage, hoping a cafe, restaurant or someone would love to obtain them to display as a large collection?? So if anyone knows anyone who may be interested, please get them to get in touch with this auction! :)

475 of them are marked silver (not sure if just plated or pure, possibly both), from what I can tell, but quite possibly may be many more as only did a quick search. The 475 amount weighs 8.9kgs, for those wondering. There are also heaps of cast iron ones as well.

Pick up only from Morrinsville, but am willing to meet somewhere within reason if need be.

Also have over 40 racks that I will include with the auction, only if it sells. I feel price offered is fair given the amount & the hard work & dedication put into crafting this magnificent collection over so many years.

Any questions please feel free to ask, will do my best to answer what I can.
