“Up wi' the flowers of Scotland,
The emblems o' the free
Their guardians for a thousand years,
Their guardians still we'll be,
A foe had better brave the de'il
Within his reeky cell,
Than our thistle's purple bonnet,
Or bonny heather bell.
- James Hogg

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 10cm (3.9”) long and comes in a black presentation box.
Our thistle spoons are made from solid polished lead free pewter which is completely food safe. They are also non-tarnishing (that was the lead) and because we use solid metal the surface of your thistle spoon will never flake or rust. To clean, just wash with warm soapy water.
