CALIFORNIA MIDWINTER INTERNATIONAL EXPOSITION
The first official spoon for the California International Mid-Winter Exposition, was struck last week at the factory of the Campbell-Metcalf Silver Co., Providence, R.I. The design submitted by this house was the one adopted by Director-General M. H. de Young and the concessionaire. The spoon is most artistic in every way, the die work being particularly fine, while it admirably suggests the occasion and the State of California. On the obverse side are typified the west, the State of California, its fruits and flowers, the occasion, the bear (California's emblem), tropical trees, the 49'ers, while in the bowl are depicted the principal fair buildings and the signature of the Director General, M. H. de Young. On the reverse of the spoon are typified the Cliff House with its seal rocks, the San Gabriel Mission at Los Angeles, the Golden Gate, the Lick Observatory, and the poppy. Eisenbach & Beck, Mills Building, San Francisco, represent the Campbell-Metcalf Silver Co. in that city.
