They take you on a step by step process of how to make this elegant, fun and pretty teaspoon of delight.    Seeing this teaspoon reminded me of the welsh 爱 勺 that we were given for our 订婚 礼品 several years ago by our 表姐 who lives in Amanford, Carmarthenshire in Southern Wales.

凯尔特人的传统是送出一枚刻有两颗心的Lovespoon,作为彼此之间持久承诺的象征。

Welsh 爱 勺

您可以在此处看到,两颗心可以并排放置,也可以彼此叠置。

爱情勺是由她的求婚者送给一位年轻女子的。

这对女孩很重要’的父亲看到这个年轻人有能力供养家庭和木工。

水手们在漫长的旅途中经常会雕刻爱情汤匙,这就是为什么锚通常会融入雕刻中的原因。

尽管威尔士的爱情汤匙最有名,但在这里也有爱情汤匙的传统 斯堪的纳维亚半岛 和某些部分 东欧洲,它们都有自己独特的样式和技术。  Some of the early 爱 勺s can be seen on display at the Welsh Folk Museum in Cardiff.

The young man would spend hours carving the 勺 with his own hands, in the hope that the girl would accept it. If the girl accepted the 勺, she would demonstrate her interest in him and they would commence on a relationship, which is the origin of the word ‘spooning’.

This was a custom that was not confined to Wales, but happened across Europe, especially in Celtic countries. Because the rural peasant people used wooden 勺s to eat and prepare 餐饮, they had to carve numerous simple 勺s for this purpose. It is very likely therefore that more intricate carvings developed naturally from this, and the most beautiful 勺s were kept to give as 礼品s.

在漫长的冬天的夜晚,年轻人有很多时间在忙碌,有些人会转向诗歌或作曲,而另一些人则会用备用的木头雕刻各种东西,例如厨房用具或玩具给孩子们。

很难想象一个年轻人在辛苦一天后’s work, in a period of no radio or television or cars, spending his leisure time during dark evenings carving a 勺 for the girl he 爱d. Spoons could also suggest 餐饮 on the table, and a cosy 家庭 life, which would impress on the girl his ability to care for her and a 家庭.

Wales was a poor society whose youth could not afford presents of expensive jewellery, and therefore they would do their utmost to create as beautiful 勺s as possible.

那时,非常需要丈夫的实践技能,并且用雕刻精美的勺子可以展示这个年轻人’的技能。当雕刻师争夺某个女孩的吸引力时,他们将尝试创建越来越复杂的设计。雕刻设计越复杂,越困难,就越能象征创作者的深度’的爱和渴望代表他所爱的人工作的愿望。勺子的尺寸也可能反映雕刻者’是爱,但汤匙的尺寸确实有所不同,从8厘米到一米长不等。

这个词的第一个例子“llwy” (which is ‘spoon’于威尔士(Walsh)出现在6世纪威尔士诗人塔里辛(Taliesin)的作品中,这表明这种器具在第一个现有的有形实例出现之前已有几个世纪的历史了。厨房中使用的木制器皿的寿命不会很长,并且从18世纪开始的早期存活下来的原始木制器皿很少。

该习俗在威尔士各地普遍存在,没有证据表明某些地区偏爱某些设计。不可能知道有多少只爱匙。许多都是非常精致的作品,尽管它们不被用于饮食或烹饪,但它们很容易被打破。现有的最早的例子来自17世纪,有可能勺子放在一起的形状暗示了恋人放在一起的方式。

关于在雕刻爱情汤匙中使用的不同符号和图案的重要性一直存在很多争论。许多年轻的雕刻师都很害羞,不愿表现出自己的情感,这将试图通过使用各种符号来传达他们的真实感受。几个世纪以来,添加了更多的符号和图案,并且随着爱匙变得更加精致和装饰,它们已成为收藏品。

Many of the symbols to convey 爱 have been used from the earliest 勺s, and are familiar throughout Europe. For instance, a chain would mean a wish to be together forever, a diamond would mean wealth or good fortune, a cross would mean faith, a flower would mean affection, or a dragon for protection etc.

必须记住,‘engaging’直到18世纪末,在威尔士乡村举行婚礼仪式并不普遍,大多数年轻夫妇只会同居。

如今,除了作为对威尔士的亲切礼物或纪念品外,在许多特殊场合(例如婚礼,生日,周年纪念日,分娩,订婚,洗礼,房屋保暖和圣瓦伦丁节),都可以使用爱情汤匙。

这是为了庆祝50岁生日而制作的。

Many of the young carvers were shy and unwilling to show their emotions, and this would attempt to convey their true feelings through the use of various symbols. Over the centuries, many more symbols and motifs have been added and as the 爱 勺s became more elaborate and decorative, they have become collectables.

婚礼或周年纪念日或和谐共处。

笼子里的球 爱情可以保全孩子
