These Victoria demitasse spoons have what appear to be plain, and simple handles. The handles are surrounded with a single raised rim, which runs symmetrically about the edges of the demitasse spoon’s handle, but which culminate at the base with an internal dimple. What is the dimple of the handle of the demitasse spoon? Pursed lips? Braced punctuation? Or if you hold the demitasse spoon vertically, are these the rounded mounds on an elongated heart? Perhaps, in true Victorian style, the lips give symmetry, while remaining understated, so that the simplicity of the demitasse spoon is complementary to the complexity of your flavorful espresso. Like the Queen, the Victoria demitasse spoon is serious business disguised as mere elegance.
