Spoon Brooches

Some more bits of treasure that I unearthed from a box recently (see my Kitsch & Curious blog for more). I love unusual jewellery, especially brooches, but even I was surprised to find that I had two brooches in the shape of miniature spoons. What is it all about?

My brief researches have revealed nothing, so I am going to put forward my own theory, which may be a bit shocking for readers who have led a sheltered life. I think they were love tokens, with the message that the giver wanted to spoon with the recipient. Phew! Racy stuff, eh? And possibly... the front spoon held the message that someone wanted to spoon under a palm tree? Exotic and racy!
