The Manners Teaspoons Have Two Heads for Sugar Scooping and Stirring

At a traditional tea party, more than one spoon is required by each attendee. The Manners Teaspoons account for the fact that each drinker will want his or her own stirring spoon, and that an additional utensil -- often shared -- is required for the distribution of sugar.

To decrease the amount of necessary cutlery, artist Nicole Wermers has designed a double-ended spoon to improve the efficiency and the sanitation of preparing a cup of tea alongside other people. The Manners Teaspoons each have one 1950s and 1980s style scooper.

Specifically, the unique implement was created for the café at the Tate Britain, and since the recent reopening of the gallery's restaurant, the silverware has been so enjoyed by patrons that much of it has been stolen.
