This is a modern brass version of an antique carved wooden Welsh Love Spoon. We think it would make a delightful coffee scoop to brighten your morning routine. Or, add it to a stack of coffee table books for an interesting "Objet d'art". It has a wonderful patina and weight.

History: "The custom of carving and giving Welsh Love Spoons originated in Wales hundreds of years ago. The young men of today would probably buy flowers, chocolates or jewellery as a token of affection.
Centuries ago in Wales, the young lover would also give gifts of sweets or cakes; but they would also give a special, more personal gift to the object of their desire, the Welsh Love Spoon. Some of the early love spoons can be seen on display at the Welsh Folk Museum in Cardiff. There is even one that dates back to 1667."
