The Exposition Universelle of 1889 had a profound impact on France, and Paris in particular. The exposition displayed wonders from around the world, never seen before in the west, and marvels of science and engineering that must have seemed like witchcraft to many. However, one part of the exposition would have a lasting effect: the building of the Eiffel Tower would change the world's idea of the city forever. Considering it is still standing more than one hundred years after it was supposed to be dismantled, we can consider it was an overwhelming success. Of course, the Eiffel Tower is now the quintessential image of Paris, and this spoon is an example of how it started. Spoons featuring the Eiffel Tower were sold around the time of the exposition as souvenirs, and originals are now much sought after by collectors.


  • Handle : Flat with kinked neck to rest on the rim of the glass
  • Head : Flat, with two spikes preventing the sugar from falling off the spoon too soon.
