Gift Guide 2019: Silver Spears

December 13, 2019

If you’ve never seen asparagus tongs before – and really, who has? – this is what they look like. You slip your fingers into the loops and pick up the spears, one by one.

As utensils go, these are pure Victoriana. But they’d make a perfect gift for someone who has everything. Or a cutlery freak. Or simply someone who loves strangely beautiful objects.

This particular tong is an antique – and you can find examples on the web. Try here or here.

This one, on the other hand, is a contemporary version made by Vagabond House; you can find it here. (They also make other interesting objects for asparagus freaks.)
