Welsh Sycamore Lovespoon. Havard and Havard

A beautiful Welsh lovespoon has gone on sale for thousands of pounds.

The antique Welsh Sycamore Lovespoon from the Georgian period has been given a whopping price tag of £3,250.

The item is being sold by antique dealers Havard and Havard, which is based in the affluent market town of Cowbridge, in the Vale of Glamorgan.

The description of the item on the Selling Antiques website says: “A beautifully drawn spoon in remarkably crisp condition and of soft, pale colour. I particularly like the well spaced, pierced, traditional designs on the handle enclosed by a band of chip carving.”

Seeing the skill & expertise in making Lovespoons, not wholly surprising that they make thousands of pounds. Some of the examples from the mid 17th century are amazing. The craftsmanship is second to none.
