Mother Of Pearl Caviar Spoon

Caviar spoons are traditionally made of inert materials, such as mother of pearl, gold, horn and moulded plastic.

There is a custom that caviar should not be served with a metal spoon, because metal may impart an undesirable flavour. It is often pointed out that caviar itself is stored in metal tins, however, the inside of all caviar tins are coated in a special edible food varnish.

This ornate caviar spoon is made from mother of pearl.
