Gorham Silver Gaspee Commemorative Spoon

Here's a really fabulous sterling souvenir spoon from Gorham which is assumed to cover the topic of Rhode Island, although there are no markings whatever on the spoon aside from the Gorham hallmarks, and Tilden Thurber & Co marked on the reverse of the stem.  The handle has a beautifully cast full figure of a man, proabably Roger Williams, holding a book (bible) and standing atop a plinth. The bowl is has a magnificently detailed sea scene of the burning of the Gaspee. Found on eBay 4/2005. Spoon is 5 and 7/8 inches in length.
