Tiny pewter love spoon design pendant on a rhodium plated trace chain

A Lovespoon is normally a wooden spoon decoratively carved that was traditionally presented as a gift of romantic intent.
The spoon is normally decorated with symbols of love, and was intended to reflect the skill of the carver.
Certain symbols came to have specific meanings:

Horseshoe - Luck

Anchor - Steadfastness

Celtic Cross - Faith or marriage

Keys / Keyholes - My houses is yours

Bells - Marriage

Single Heart - My heart is yours

Double Spoons - The couple

Flowers - Courtship

Leaves - Growing Love

Wheel - Supporting a loved one

Lock - Security,

Caged balls indicated the number of children hoped for

Other difficult carvings, such as chains, were as much a demonstration of the carver's skill as a symbolic meaning.

Width: 9mm Height: 31mm Chain length: 18 inch (45cm)
