Retired Franklin Mint Welsh Wales Love Spoons Sterling W/ Wooden Display Frame For Sale
The first Franklin Mint "LOVE SPOONS" in the ancient and charming tradition of the Love Spoons of Wales "Beside her tiny thatched-roof cottage, a young Welsh peasant girl - demure and shyly pretty - sits and waits for the country lad who, she hopes, will soon come to her a-wooing.She hears a hesitant footstep, and hastens to greet her caller. And now her heart skips a beat, for her swain has brought the long hoped-for declaration - and gift - of love. A beautifully crafted Love Spoon - a loving statement of his serious courting intentions, of his ardent desire 'to spoon'...Smiling gently, she accepts the gift. And in so doing, she also accepts her suitor's declaration of love - and gants him the right to hope that, one day soon, he and she may be betrothed.Thus - with nary a spoken word between them - these two young people have taken their first tentative step toward marriage."
