Welsh Love Spoon Symbols
CAGED BALLS - The years a suitor would be prepared to wait to marry or the number of children in a family. In recent times, the balls have been related to total family members so the triple ball for example is a perfect gift on the occasion of a couple's first child or christening.
CROSS - Symbolises the blessing of a couple's union and faith in marriage.
DOUBLE SPOONS - Represents a couple together forever.
HEART - Shows that the carver's heart always belongs to his loved one.
HORSESHOE - An age old symbol of good luck and happiness.
KEYHOLE - Living together after marriage. My house is yours.
LINKS - Shows two lives linked together forever.
LOCK - Promises that the suitor will look after his love and provide security.
TWISTED STEM - To live together as one. Again from Wales' seafaring history and based on the coils of rope.
TWO HEARTS - Two people who share the same feelings.
