Even wealthy homes in Victorian Britain were often poorly heated and thus very cold for much of the year. Hot food is not only appetising, but was considered proof of a well-run household. Serving food with a cold spoon was also thought to accelerate the cooling process. A decorative container filled with hot water to keep serving spoons and ladles warm was a perfect solution, allowing food to be served at the right temperature, and fitting in with all of the other items found in a fashionable late 19th century dining room. The earliest spoon warmers date from the 1860's and a silver nautilus or other type of shell, often on a sea-shore themed base, was a popular shape for a spoon warmer.
