Enameled Flower Spoons

The spoons on this page are all enameled flowers. I hadn't even thought to place these into a separate category, until I was informed that a number of other people did. Ever eager to please other spooners, hope you enjoy these beautiful spoons.

Flowers were very popular to the Victorians and figured prominently in the Art Nuevo style, and we find lots of different flowers on both souvenir spoons and in standard flatware pieces. In fact, I suspect that there are more different types of "flower" spoons than any other single category.

However, I must confess my ignorance on this subject. I do not know much about botany. To me, there are a few flowers like roses, violets etc. then there is a big category just "flowers". Therefore, if any of the readers of this page wish to add their input and knowledge I will gladly update it per their instructions (email available from exhibits index page).
