Eating like a Roman
Romans loved splendor and glamour. They tried to implement it in every aspect of their lives - at least the better off Romans did. But also the Roman citizens from the lower stand naturally liked nice things. They may not have had the money to buy cutlery made of precious metals or ivory but they still knew how to turn something rather plain in something beautiful. The same is true for spoons. The spoon at hand functions as proof for this statement. It resembles a typical shape of spoon that was very popular in the Roman Empire during the early and late periods. It conveys very distinctive differences from modern day spoons yet understands allure the eye nonetheless. It is simply timeless.
Furthermore, it is made from lemon wood. That may not be 100% authentic but it still makes for a great overall look. But this spoon is not only good for decoration but also for actual use!
If you want to experience what it meant like to eat your soup as a Roman than this is just the item for you. But also if you plan to spice up your normal cutlery, then this spoon will surely help you to achieve our goal.

Note: Wooden utensils have been used as crockery in many countries for centuries every day. However, the German legislator demands for their use a food law certification according to the Food and Consumer Goods Act (LFBG), which unfortunately is very expensive and would have a negative effect on the favorable selling price of our goods. So we offer this product almost only as a prop or replica, which is at least by definition not certified for food.
