Australian flora and fauna on silver spoons 1971–2021, Christine Erratt
The late Professor Kenneth Cavill’s article published in Australiana1 identified about 50 spoons of Australian and British manufacture, marking royal
and other occasions, with heraldic motifs, maps of Australia or Tasmania and flora and fauna, made either in factories or in craft workshops. Overlapping almost half the years in Cavill’s survey, this article looks at the last 50 years of silver spoon making in Australia, especially decoration using Australian flora and fauna. Silver commemorative spoons and silver plated (EPNS) spoons are omitted.
