Hanson Family Spoon Mystery

We have had a wooden spoon in our family for some time but don't know its history.
We suspect that it came from a time when a man courted a woman by making a spoon for her.

Does anyone know the history of such spoons?

Please email me at if you have any information.

Here are pictures of the spoon.
