The earliest known dated Love Spoon is displayed at St Fagans Museum in Cardiff, South Wales and dates back to the 17th Century. A Love Spoon is a traditional carved wooden spoon and the imagery carved in to the spoon contains various meanings.
Today Love Spoons are given as gifts for weddings and anniversaries; this beautifully carved Love Spoon was brought to me for a personalised engraving ready for a summer wedding.
We tested a piece of the same wood first to get the right effect and depth of engraving, and measured and tested (and repeated several times) to make sure our engraving was perfectly centred… particularly difficult for the curved engraving on the horse shoe!
Our customer was happy with the result, which is brilliant news… after hours of carving we wanted to get it absolutely spot on!
