These Florence demitasse spoons start with a gracefully small stem attached to the bowl of the spoon, with a slightly flared handle, outlining the demitasse spoon in a set of three rims. Simple and graceful, like Florence itself, the rim triplets cross each other once on each side, and again at the base of the demitasse spoon’s handle. As we know, Florence is the capital of Tuscany, so the Florence demitasse spoon is the perfect vehicle with which to serve your espresso. As a Tuscan artifact, its crossed rims are sophisticated, yet simple - like much of the masterful art in Florence. And if you look closely, you’ll see that the crossing at the base of this demitasse spoon actually gives rise to two boughs - reminiscent of Florentine architecture.
