Tudor England saw the introduction of spoons as a common Christening present among the rich and another way to demonstrate one’s elevated social status. Silver rattle spoons therefore became a common gift for new born babies. Spoons became useful for serving food, condiments and preserves. Rattle spoons were more likely to be played with by their recipient!
Spoons are among the oldest eating utensils although there are many different types of spoon throughout the world. Spoons preceded knives and forks and were the main utensil at mealtimes.
