TD70 - This heart knot love spoon in pewter features a series of interwoven hearts forming the handle.
A Lovespoon is normally a wooden spoon decoratively carved that was traditionally presented as a gift of romantic intent.
The spoon is normally decorated with symbols of love, and was intended to reflect the skill of the carver.
Certain symbols came to have specific meanings: a horseshoe for luck, a cross for faith, bells for marriage, hearts for love, a wheel supporting a loved one and a lock for security, among others. Caged balls indicated the number of children hoped for.
Other difficult carvings, such as chains, were as much a demonstration of the carver’s skill as a symbolic meaning.
