Ancient druids were drawn to the oaks beauty, strength and noble presence. It symbolises: truth, courage and wisdom along with endurance, generosity, protection, justice and nobility.
The oak is England’s national tree.
How big is a pinch of salt?
As most people do not have spoons small enough, a pinch of salt, sugar, or spice is traditionally defined as "the amount that can be taken between the thumb and forefinger".
There are various opinions as to the actual quantity for a pinch of salt and either 1/16 or 1/8 teaspoon (0.3 or 0.6 ml) seem to be the most common.
As a general rule, there are two dashes in a tad, two pinches in a dash and two smidgens in a pinch, hope that helps! If not, our oak leaf salt spoon holds 1.2 g (0.04 oz) of heaped salt, 0.6 g (0.02 oz) rounded and 0.4 g (0.01 oz) levelled.
The silver coloured Oak leaf salt spoon is 9.3 cm (3.7”) long and comes packaged in an organza bag with care and usage instructions. However, if you select gift wrapping, the spoon will come in a gift wrapped black presentation box.
Each oak leaf tiny 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 oak leaf condiment 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.
