Lutezia Tea Spoon Set (Set of 6) - 15.5 cm Length - Handcrafted in Italy - Pewter & Stainless Steel
Larger than a coffee spoon, as the traditional purpose of a teaspoon was to cool the tea to make it more palatable, and a larger spoon hastens this cooling process. The need to cool the tea more quickly is one of the reasons why the tea cup is wider than a coffee mug.
Italian pewter and stainless steel are fused together to combine strength and an ergonomic design; all hand-crafted by Italian artisans, to create this pretty little teaspoon.
The Lutezia range of flatware and serving ware is inspired by ancient Rome, in fact Lutezia is the Roman name for Paris. The pewter handles take the form of double or bow-shaped balusters, a design that features prominently in Roman silverware, such as handmirrors, spoons, forceps and other utensils from the 2nd Century BC, as well as within architecture, where marble columns and bas-reliefs were carved as balusters. There are further Roman touches to the handles, including the anthemia or palmette-styled decorated terminals or handle tips, as well as fluted frieze-style decorated handle necks; both very popular styles in Roman art and architecture. The classic style of the cutlery, with its exquisite and elegant design, adds sophistication to any table setting, formal or informal.
The pewter handles of Lutezia cutlery are made using a special technique: the molten pewter is directly cast onto the steel tips of the cutlery; this process forms what is really a single element in which the "hardness" of the steel discreetly dissolves into the "soft" surface of the pewter handle, more suitable for contact with the hands.
The Lutezia Tea Spoon, sold in sixes, complements a full range of flatware available in Cosi Tabellini's popular Lutezia range.
