We have a nice ledge on the one wall of the basement stairs. It will be good for planned displays. For now it is a catch all space for me to place things that need to go to the basement. My pottery piece heads downstairs while the cafe ware bowl actually is headed upstairs to be a Barney bowl.
This is called a spooner. I looked it up as I thought maybe my ideas about it were from my imagination. I did remember it correctly. I don't know what nationality developed the idea of a container, holding spoons, that would be left on the table. I could see that if you had tea often that it would be good to keep the spoons on the table ready to go at tea time. Some of the spooners that I found on the internet were fancy pressed glass pieces.
I thank you for stopping by today. Have a good day.
