Spooners are also known as spoon holders. They were set on the table and filled with spoons. Teaspoons were used most often at meals and teatime so the spooners were just left on the table.
Spoon holders can be used for much more than holding your silverware at the table. You can add some mints or nuts with a small serving spoon. Or even add a small spray of colorful flowers. Mini Christmas ornaments or tiny Easter Eggs would also add a pop of color to your holiday table! Or just display them as is on a shelf!
