According to Welsh folklore, these ornately carved spoons were traditionally made from a single piece of wood by young men as a love token to show his affection and intentions for his loved one.
The earliest surviving example, displayed in the Welsh Folk museum in Cardiff, is dated around 1667, although the tradition probably dates back long before that.
Over decades certain symbols came to have different meanings, (see the list below).Sailors would often carve love spoons during their long journeys, which is why anchors would often be incorporated.
Today, love spoons are requested from all over the world. They are given as gifts for weddings, engagements, christenings, birthdays and anniversaries or as a love token and as a souvenir from Wales.
