Spoon Item Number: 3443/13 from the MOA: University of British Columbia

This set of containers and spoons (3443/1-16) were given to the donor's family in the mid-1950s, from their elderly neighbour, Mrs. Bissett, who lived in Hopkins Landing. Her husband had worked for a steamship company which made regular trips to east Asia in the late 19th/early 20th century, and brought many objects home on his return voyages.
