Vintage American Collectors Guild collectible souvenir gold colored brass spoon featuring GEMINI (the Twins - Zodiac/Astrology). Excellent condition with no damage to note. The bowl of the spoon features in high relief many of the astrological signs of Gemini and GEMINI is in high relief along the length of the spoon handle.
Gemini, the sign of the Twins, is dual-natured, elusive, complex and contradictory. On the one hand it produces the virtue of versatility, and on the other the vices of two-facedness and flightiness. The sign is linked with Mercury, the planet of childhood and youth, and its subjects tend to have the graces and faults of the young. When they are good, they are very attractive; when they are bad they are more the worse for being the charmers they are. Like children they are lively, and happy, if circumstances are right for them, or egocentric, imaginative and restless. They take up new activities enthusiastically but lack application, constantly needing new interests, flitting from project to project as apparently purposelessly as a butterfly dancing from flower to flower. To them life is a game which must always be full of fresh moves and continuous entertainment, free of labor and routine. Changing course in the middle of the stream is another small quirk in the Gemini personality which makes decision making, and sticking to a decision, particularly hard for them.
This vintage gold colored brass souvenir collectible demitasse spoon with many of the astrological signs of Gemini would be the perfect special silverware or flatware piece to use as a tea spoon, flavored coffee spoon, an espresso spoon, a cappuccino spoon and even as a hot chocolate spoon! This souvenir collectible spoon measures 4.5" in length, weighs .5 ounces and is marked on the back of the spoon with AMERICAN COLLECTORS GUILD.
