Reduced price by $25! The Welsh lovespoon carving is the perfect way to tell someone how you feel. I call this lovespoon "Cathedral" because of the arches along the top of the handle. It is hand carved from poplar. Though it is my own design, it is in the style of the traditional Welsh lovespoon.

The gift of a lovespoon as a token of affection and commitment stems from ancient times with examples from all over the world. The most widespread and enduring tradition began in Wales in the mid-1600s. The tradition, which continues to this day, tells us that a young man in love carved a spoon, in itself a symbol of food and plenty, to be presented to the young woman he fancied. Since romance was involved the design of the spoon often included symbols of love, protection, stability, the ability of the suitor to provide for a family, luck, prosperity and many other things. Tradition also tells us that if the young woman accepted the lovespoon, she also accepted his love, so it was sort of a rural engagement ring. We don’t know if that is strictly true, but if it isn’t, it should be.

This Welsh lovespoon carving features a standard bowl surmounted by an area of geometric engraving. Above this are a pair of larger hearts above a smaller heart and two raindrops. The smaller heart symbolizes the wish for a child, and the two raindrops are fertility symbols indicating a family that will grow.

It will make a great gift for a wedding as well as other occasions. It is about 10" long, and 2" wide.

This love spoon would make a wonderfully unique wedding gift. It is my original design, and there is not another like it in the world. A gift of this spoon would mean so much more than something purchased in a mall.

The spoon is hand carved from poplar and finished with a liquid wax.
