Looking for Information on Emerson-Brantingham Spoon

Emerson-Brantingham-Spoon 

I found this spoon while sorting through my deceased father-in-law’s belongings. The top side has the Emerson-Brantingham logo surrounded by the words “Emerson-Brantingham Farm Machinery: Hay Tools-Drills-Planters-Harrows-Cultivators-Plows-Rockford Ill.” The reverse side of the handle lists “Gas Engines-Wagons-Tractors-Spreaders-Threshers-Vehicles and the Emerson Foot Lift Plow.”

The marking “Wallace A14” (on the back) is probably the maker of the spoon. 

I would be interested to know more about the spoon. Was it part of a set given to buyers or just a single promotional item? How many were made? How old is it?
