Wedding spoon - September 14, 1927

By Maya Chelmis

Today's story is about my friend's Ellie's mom, a sweet French ladymarried to a lovely Greek man.

I visited them this summer in Athens, and she showed the silver spoon that her Grandmother received for her wedding on September 14, 1927.
It was accompanied by the wedding dinner menu (a 16 course dinner!), and on the bottom and back of the spoon handle is engraved the number 14, for the date of the wedding.
Now those are my kind of stories! If you have some too, don't hesitate to share them with me!
