So I have been talking with Mathew about spoon racks and thought I would put a few pictures of different types up here. These date from the days when everyone had their own personal wooden spoon which they washed and popped back in the rack. First a joined one, these are quite common in the antiques trade and most come from Wales late 19th C.
Next a couple from St Fagans folk life museum I love the gorgeous simplicity of this design.
And this one is an even nicer example being made entirely from small branchwood, the joint at the right hand end is part of the tree where the branch attaches to the main stem. The branch forms the handle and the main stem the rack.
And finally one from Skansen Open Air Museum in Stockholm, a most wonderful place.
