In the beginning...

A wooden spoon of China, which was in the sugar bowl of her mom, which was given to her in 1909 when she was a girl, was the first wooden spoon of this collection which started after World War II in 1946. Up to now, Ruth Kampffmeyer and her brother Gerd have collected approximately 3.300 wooden spoons from all over the world.

The wooden spoon, the oldest cutlery of the human being, did not always serve only for drinking and eating, but it expresses the culture, appreciation of art of a tribe, an ethnic group in a certain region. These cult and friendship symbols show a hardly conceivable variety of shapes, colors, traditions, style of art and period and often a high level of skilled ability.
