No one can say for sure when or how this tradition of giving wooden carved spoons to a loved one began. Certainly it appears in both the Nordic and Celtic traditions and some very early examples have been discovered in Northern France. Being wood examples of pre 17th century spoons are very rare but some decorated spoons have been found in Neolithic burials. I make spoons by hand only in the style of spoons I have seen in museums. They are free hand and consequently each spoon is totally unique. Here are some examples but I am happy to carve spoons to order. Just contact me via the website and I can carve a unique spoon just for you
