Spoons featuring the Eiffel Tower were sold around the time of the "Exposition Universelle" of 1889 as souvenirs. Read the whole description
At the time the Eiffel Tower was an incredible engineering feat, but it wasn't popular with everyone, especially some who thought it might fall over. When it was opened, the tower was by far the tallest man-made structure in the world, so it's not surprising some were concerned.
The author Maupassant was supposed to have said he hated the tower so much he ate lunch in the only place it wasn't possible to see it: inside the tower's restaurant itself.
Antique absinthe spoons featuring the Eiffel tower can sell for thousands of euros, although buyer beware: there could be hundreds of times more fake Eiffel Tower spoons out there than genuine ones!
