I have acquired a Lovely little Souvenir Spoon that is marked:


It is commemorating Jekyll Island, GA.
It was delivered to me in a box that says:
    "Beau Sterling Silver"

I can find some information on Beau, I think that would be the Beaucraft Company who made mostly Silver Jewelry pieces and some Souvenir Spoons.

I can find absolutely nothing regarding BRUCE STERLING.

Now I am beginning to wonder if the box and the spoon belong together.

Does anyone have any information to direct me on

  1. the origin of the BRUCE STERLING mark. and
  2. if the two [Bruce] and {Beau} are related?

Bruce Sterling is a well-known science-fiction writer in the cyberpunk school. But that probably isn't what you were asking.

Hello and welcome to the forum. Because it it is written on the box rather than engraved in the spoon, the term may be merely descriptive: Beau sterling silver = "beautiful sterling silver".

By the way, we ask new members to tell us a bit about themselves and their collecting interests.
