Silver and Flatware/Oneida Community Par Plate

Question
I have 5 spoons with markings of Oneida Community Par Plate. Each has an engraved  picture on top of spoon, signature of each on front  and the name of a actor/actress imprinted under headshot -- Douglas Fairbanks, Norma Shearer, Richard Dix, Thomas Meighan and Norma Talmedge. Found these in mother-in-laws old possessions.

Answer
Hello.

I do not have much experience with souvenir spoons like this. It appears these are made of silver plate. I have seen silver plate spoons of similar design bring $5 to $10 each from collectors of such spoons. The problem is finding those collectors. There are websites devoted to souvenir spoons that might help.

Sorry I could not help more.

Best wishes,

Jim
