The Welsh tradition of the Lovespoon dates back to the 17th century when young men would carve them from wood, decorate the handle with romantic symbols and give them to the lady who had caught their eye. The earliest surviving example, dating from around 1667, is on display at the National History Museum in St. Fagans, Cardiff.
