The oldest wooden spoons of the Kampffmeyer collection go back to the Middle Ages. For example the apothecaries’ spoon with a figure of a saint which is said to make medicine very strong, the spoon of a nobleman with the filigree silver hull at the handle, the French public house spoon which was chained at the table and which was available to hiking journeymen, the round spoon with the small silver Christ of the abbot of a monastery at the Attersee.

The tradition spoons of the Philippines, drinking spoons of Persia, wunkirle of Africa etc. are old, too.

Spoons of African tribes are 250 years old and older, whose culture will now get lost due to wars, fights and expulsion. The Historical Museum of the Palatinate in Speyer has created a valuation report and among others highlights the "nationwide meaning".
