Silver Gilded Spoon

 

The rattle-spoon is a gift from the tooth fairy.

Long ago, when the star of Bethlehem shone in the sky, the Three Wise Men came to a baby with a bow and gave him gifts. Perhaps that was the origin of the tradition to present a precious gift to the infant in honor of his first important occasion. In the Ancient East, it could be a gift of gold, while the gifts of Slavs were and are of silver.

Little silver spoon used to be traditionally presented "at first tooth". Then this tradition was continued – they presented a dessertspoon to gymnasia student on the first day of his study, and on the graduation day, they presented him a tablespoon.

Rattle-spoon is the first gift, a surprise for the smallest person. The spoon is made of silver and gold. Its simple antique forms will be relevant at the time, when the tooth fairy will be a fairy tale and children's memory again. Pattern on the handle is simultaneously concise and refined, and tiny beanbag today entertains, and sometime in the future it will remind about the warm and precious moments of the childhood.
