A Lovely Spoon

The "Love" Spoon
Circa 1890

All these beautiful birds on our blog reminded me of a lovely spoon in my collection. This sterling silver "Love" Spoon was created by leading jewelers of the time.  What a wonderful spoon for the newly engaged young lady, the bride, the friend; or for a mother and father to give to their boy or girl as a token of their love for them. On the handle is a love-knot, and the figure of a dove which represents true love encircled by forget-me-nots. The bowl is in the shape of a heart with "Love" in raised letters in the center.
