The Illustra demitasse spoon is as robust and as curvaceous as it gets, but it does so in a classically decorous way. While the outer edges of the demitasse spoon are bow shaped, and those edges are accented with raised swirling boughs, the very inner surface of the demitasse spoon’s handle rises to a peaked line down its center. And that peaked line has a subtle curve to it; a curve making it look both feminine and informal.
