Vintage figural brass gold colored collectible souvenir spoon featuring Esmeralda in the bell tower from the novel The Hunchback of Notre Dame. The spoon itself is in excellent condition with no damage to note, but the front of the spoon bowl seems to have been gold gilded at one time, with much of the gold missing, thus giving the front of the spoon bowl a rough feeling.
