I don't recall ever seeing the Easter spoons.

Does anyone have an example they might post?

Can't recall seeing an example of the Lily spoon, it is a lovely design. Have an enameled example of the other one - interestingly, the George E. Homer chick-in-egg spoon, on the left in my pic, appears in an 1897 Alvin ad, only to be replaced with another spoon in the next ad. Perhaps Homer took issue with it, since the patent (#D23379) didn't expire for another four years (seems likely that Alvin manufactured the spoon for them).

Thanks so much for sharing. To put it all together here is the Hommer patent.
