Almost exactly seventeen years ago I was at an antiques show with a friend while our husbands were watching a football game on TV, when I came across a beautiful sterling silver spork made by Elizabeth Eaton in London in 1846. Up to then I’d never even heard of sporks, but I immediately bought it, and have looked for other silver sporks but haven’t been able to find one since.
I predict that’s about to change: I’m sure that many silver spoons will be altered to look like sporks and sold on ebay in the next few years. Why?
Sporks are coming back
