$12 · Bucherer of Switzerland Collectable Spoon
This 4-1/4" silver plated spoon is one of the famous advertising spoons produced by Bucherer, the equally famous chain of jewelry stores headquartered in Lucerne, Switzerland. Carl-Frederich Bucherer opened the first store in 1888 and the family-run company is still in business today, headed by third-generation Jörg G. Bucherer as Chairman of the Board. The Ro lex spoons, which often have the names of cities where a Bucherer store exists, were given away as free souvenirs at Switzerland hotels where they were placed on the pillow like a mint.
This one says "ro lex" and "Bucherer" on the top of its stem and the spoon bowl features an engraved sleeping lion. Stem back is stamped "Bucherer of Switzerland" and "CB 69 M."
In excellent condition.
