These Elegant demitasse spoons are just that: “elegant” - hence their name. In fact, these Elegant demitasse spoons may actually be overdone - bordering on rococo. Is rococo elegant? It can be. And in the case of these demitasse spoons, we’d have to say “Yes.” The lower inch-plus of the spoon’s handle is decorated with a tiny row of dots on each side of its narrow and delicate bridge to the much fancier hilt of the espresso spoon. There is a pattern of “fingers” which terminates each row of dots, and then the demitasse spoon’s handle flairs out dramatically. The dramatic flair of the handle is again bordered by tiny dots, and then culminates in the very broad base of the handle on which (again) appear a much larger version of the fingers that we saw on the way down. This demitasse spoon has many tiny dots, many groups of fingers, and is - well - “elegant.” Need we say more? It’s an elegant demitasse spoon!
