Please note - The Beatles Shop will be closed from Sunday 26th February while we have important repairs done to the premises. The work is expected to take around 10 days. During this time there will be no one available to take phone calls and we will have no access to emails. No staff will be available for valuations. We apologise for any inconvenience. Hopefully we will be sorted, tidied and everything back in place by the 10th March, but please try ringing us first around that time just to make sure we are open. Thank you

It was part of an Event Package that was given out at Institute of Contemporary Arts on 10th September 1969, where there was a screening of some of the pair's avante garde films. The pack included various flyers and a tin tray/cake tin to bang the spoon on as a noise-maker during the screening of the Two Virgins film.

The spoons were all pre-signed by John and Yoko before they were handed out.

Estimate - £750-£1000
