Welsh Love Spoons Featuring a Ball in a Cage

Ball in a cage

The ball in a cage is symbolic of love held safe. It also symbolises the number of children that are in a family or eventually hoped to be in the family.

Since Welsh love spoons were originally intended to show off the carver’s skill and dedication to its recipient, a love spoon featuring a ball in a cage would have made a big impression. This is because balls in cages are one of the most intricate and labour intensive symbols that are featured in a Welsh love spoon.
