Spoon - Nosy Crow Skip to content


Wooden spoon, Romania, 1900 — 2000

This wooden spoon from Romania has a traditional pretty pink and green stencil design, and a small hole in the handle so that it can be hung up in a kitchen. Wooden spoons are still used widely as cookware as they do not stick or get hot and burn the cook’s hand.
