American Skyline Souvenir Spoons

(Privately Printed: 1978)

$30.00 (+ postage)

For anyone interested in collecting or learning about Sterling Silver Skyline Souvenir Spoons, this book is the major (and only) resource. Verizzo has examined "Skyline Spoons" in considerable detail and grouped them under the following headings:

  1. City Skyline – buildings of a city as seen against the horizon, which forms the upper edge of the handle

  1. Stacked City Skylines – views of city buildings placed partially upon each other on the handle, in an upright position

  1. Building Skylines – a single building which covers the entire handle

  1. Natural Skylines – configuration of nature (such as mountains, water or ice flows) form the horizon

  1. Enclosed Skylines – the contour of the horizon does not form the upper edge of the handle

  1. Partial Skylines – only about half the handle is a skyline.
