Chicago is the largest city in the U.S. state of Illinois and is known as the "Windy City". Chicago was incorporated as a town in 1833, near a portage between the Great Lakes and the Mississippi River watershed. The name "Chicago" is derived from a French rendering of the Native American word shikaakwa, translated as "wild onion" or "wild garlic," from the Miami-Illinois language. The first known reference to the site of the current city of Chicago as "Checagou" was by Robert de LaSalle around 1679.

This vintage Oneida silverplate souvenir collectible spoon measures 4.25" in length, weighs .3 ounces and is marked on the back of the spoon handle with ONEIDA COMMUNITY A1.
