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.

This reproduction absinthe spoon features an Eiffel tour bordered by exhibition pavilions, and is decorated with holes bordering the tower, dots and crosses, all allowing delicious sugared water to drip into the awaiting absinthe below.

This spoon fits perfectly in one of our hardcover spoon boxes, available in black and green.

Excellent spoon. Of the ones I have purchased from this site, it's the heaviest feeling in the hand. The design is lovely. Compliments well with the Croix design if you want to mix ornate with more simple.

A perfect complement to the glasses I purchased. The spoon fits nicely over a glass and securely sits on the rim due to the notch/indent on the handle. This was my first experience with buying these spoons so I didn't know what to expect. They are precisely cut and look great.
