The McKinley Spoon
A SPOON commemorative of our late President, embodying in its
design personal events that have become of more than national interest. On the
handle is a medallion portrait, framed in a wreath of laurel and palm. Below
is an eagle with national flags on a shield, across which is thrown a ribbon
bearing the words “Pax alma redit” (Bountiful peace returns). His last words,
“God’s will, not ours, be done,” appear on the ribbon encircling a broken column.
On the reverse side is the inscription, “William McKinley, 24th President U.
S., 1897-1901. Born 1843. Assassinated Sept. 6. Died Sept. 14,” and a palm branch,
surmounted by a martyr’s crown.
The spoon is of very heavy weight and will be sent, pre-paid, to any address on receipt of $1.75.
Send to-day for our Illustrated Catalogue for 1902.
