HISTORY: The custom of carving and giving Welsh Lovespoons originated in Wales hundreds of years ago. The young men of today would probably buy flowers, chocolates or jewellery as a token of affection. Centuries ago in Wales, the young lover would also give gifts of sweets or cakes; but they would also give a special, more personal gift to the object of their desire, the Welsh Love Spoon - Read the full History of Welsh Love Spoons here

SYMBOLS: Each Symbol has a different Meaning. There has been much debate on the significance of the different symbols and motifs used in the carving of lovespoons. Many of the young carvers were shy and unwilling to show their emotions, and this would attempt to convey their true feelings through the use of various symbols. Over the centuries, many more symbols and motifs have been added and as the love spoons became more elaborate and decorative, they have become collectables - View the meanings of the Symbols here

CARVERS: Our range of spoons are the creations of a group of wood-carvers in the southern valleys of Wales, led by Paul Curtis. Paul Curtis, a native of South Wales, grew up in a family of four children. He discovered his love and talent for woodcarving when he was very young - Read more about the Carvers of Welsh Lovespoons here
