Description

This cute pendant used to be a souvenir spoon! It is silver plated brass, and features Limoges-style hand painted frolicking dolphins in the bowl.

A lot of these spoons were first made in the 1950s by Klepa Arts in Czechoslovakia, and were usually either part of a set that people would collect, or souvenirs from resorts and theme parks. Sets included birds, flowers, Delft and even copies of famous paintings! All the painting you see is original to the spoon.

To make the pendant, I cut the bowl and handle off the spoon, grind and polish the cut edge smooth and then carefully bend the shank to make a bail. Since this is a real, vintage item, there may be areas where the plating is worn, a few minor scratches and scuffs, or some minor chipping and crazing of the enamel. Consider it part of its vintage charm!

A 17″-18″ black satin cord necklace is included. If you would like a different color or style of necklace – see the last photo for available colors and styles – please put the color you want in the “Message to Seller” section. I have a limited selection of longer lengths available, please convo me if you need something longer!
