Spooners January 25 2012, 0 Comments

Spooners or spoon holders are from the Victorian era. They provided symbolic value as well as function for Victorian Society . The prominently displayed spoons were  a symbol of hospitality and status .

I love spoon holders especially the clear  glass ones. I use them to hold dessert forks and spoons when I am doing a buffet dinner, but I also love them as  vases to hold some hand picked flowers from the garden.

Here are a couple of new ones in the store.

this one is clear glass and the handles have lions and ribbon detail at the bottom : Size is 6 inches high and diameter is 4 .25  $40.00 plus taxes
