Thistle Pewter Spoon. Thistle Gifts UK Handmade
An splendid thistle proudly sits on top a twig stem on this elegant little pewter spoon.
Scottish handmade gifts
Glover and Smith’s lead-free pewter is totally food friendly and the thistle spoon can be used for sugar, tea, coffee, salt, or anything you like!
In the language of flowers, the thistle, the national flower of Scotland, is an ancient Celtic symbol of nobility of character and birth and for this reason, the thistle is the symbol of the Order of the Thistle, a high chivalric order of Scotland.
Legend tells of a bare footed Viking attacker who stepped on a thistle at night and cried out, so alerting the defenders of a Scottish castle.
Our striking thistle spoon is 10 cm (3.9”) long and comes in a black presentation box.
Hand crafted Thistle Gifts
Each thistle spoon is hand crafted from polished, solid lead-free pewter which is non-tarnishing (that was the lead in old pewter) and completely nickel-free and food safe.
Because our designs are all created in solid metal, the surface of your thistle spoon will never flake like a silver plated spoon. To clean, simply wash with warm soapy water.
All our designs are made exclusively by us in our own workshops in Salisbury, Wiltshire.
