Vintage Porcelain Spoon Holders

Have you ever seen anything like these porcelain spoon holders? We’re semi-obsessed with these obscure pieces of formal dinnerware. They were designed to keep spoons for a buffet or coffee station elegantly available.

We love how they force you to pick up the spoons by the handles – not the bowls. It’s a nice solution to how to present extra spoons – we usually just jam them in a bistro glass. But this is much more elegant!

Have you ever seen one of these? At your grandmother’s, perhaps?
