Our Silverplate Soup Spoons from England are one of our favorite offerings. In the United States, we have grown accustomed to using a tablespoon as a soup spoon. Not so in Great Britain! These are fully restored and replated Soup Spoons that have the distinctive round bowl.  

Much like our Vintage Hotel Flatware, the spoons vary in pattern. Some are simple, some are more ornate and some are stamped with the crest of a hotel or restaurant. The lengths of the spoon handles also vary, from a more traditional 6" - 7" in length to a majestic 7 1/2" - 8 1/2" in length. 

We're quite certain that once you've tried them you won't want to go back to your basic "one-size-fits-all" tablespoon! 


Our Soup Spoons are all unique. Please allow us to choose a beautiful and pleasing selection for you.

Indicate from the drop down menu above whether you prefer spoons with a longer handle or a shorter handle and feel free to email us with any questions or special requests. Dishwasher safe however handwashing will preserve the shine.


Did you Know?

Before about 1700, people generally brought their own spoons to the table. Spoons were carried as personal property in much the same way as people today carry wallets, key rings or mobile phones.

From about 1700, the place setting became popular, and with it the "table-spoon," "table-fork," and "table-knife." Beginning in the 18th century and exploding during the Victorian era, there was a proliferation of different sorts of spoons, including the teaspoon, coffee spoon, dessert spoon, and soup spoon.

Learn More about Hotel Silver

Once found in Grand Hotels, chic cafés, elegant restaurants as well as luxury steamships and the dining cars of the great locomotives, vintage hotel silver beautifully evokes the Golden Age of Travel. Enduringly crafted using sturdy nickel silver as its base metal and coated with a thick plating of pure, gleaming silver, vintage hotel silver is unmistakeable for its simple, classic lines and its pleasing heft. Often crested with the name of the establishment, the pieces bear the gentle, lovely patina often referred to as a “butler’s finish”.

Produced by the great silversmiths here in the United States, as well as those in Britain and on the Continent, most hotel silver dates from the 1920s to the 1940s. Prized for its perfect blend of form and function, hotel silver was made to withstand the rigors of daily use. Highly collectible, vintage hotel silver is a wonderful addition to any home.

Evoking the days of elegant travel, there are many new ways that hotel silver can be enjoyed. A milk pitcher or sugar basin makes an elegant vase for flowers or fresh herbs on the kitchen counter. A collection of oval platters adds sparkle and depth in a hutch when not being called into service for a buffet or dinner party. A toast rack becomes the perfect way to display photographs, hold fingertip towels in a powder room or organize mail in the office. Mix and match cutlery brings a relaxed sophistication and elegance to any tablescape. Whatever the piece, vintage hotel silver is sure to stir memories not only of your own travels, but of exotic destinations and ports of call from parts unknown.
