A Victorian invention and considered an element to a well-run household, the spoon warmer was once very popular in England. Spoon warmers were created in the days before central heating when breakfast consisted of hot porridge and the dinners needed to remain warm. Ceilings were high and rooms drafty. And the amount of silver serving ware once possessed was seen as a measure of social status as dining rooms were meant to impress!
