| In those early Victorian days the frugal
homemaker did not set
spoons out at each place when setting a table. Indeed, she may not have had
enough spoons to go around! Instead, the spoons were kept in a “spooner”
and placed on the table within reach of those who might need them.
It seems so reasonable a practice, we wonder why it was dropped by most
Americans around the turn of the twentieth century.
We have more pieces in most of these patterns for sale, so if you already have your pattern's spooner, let us know and we'll tell you what other forms we have in stock for you.
