For decades, kitchens and restaurants across the world have been adorned with oversized fork-and-spoon wall decorations. The design has never gone out of style and, as of 2010, sets could be found for sale in both retail stores and on online shopping sites including eBay and Wal-Mart.com.
Fork-and-spoon wall decorations are available in a number of different materials and patterns. In the 1970s, wooden sets were very popular. By 2010, sets were fashioned out of wood, ceramic, glass and iron metal, to name a few materials. In addition to the stand-alone cutlery decorations, fork-and-spoon designs are also featured on wall clocks.
Fork-and-spoon wall decorations are available in a large variety of patterns, rendering them versatile as both personal collectibles and fashionable gifts. With designs such as flowers, food items, animals and regional locations, fork-and-spoon decorations can typically be found to suit any taste. They are also popular resort souvenirs, sold at many tourist shops around the globe.
The characters of Marie and Frank Barone, who are featured on the popular television sitcom "Everybody Loves Raymond," have a large, wooden fork-and-spoon set hanging on their kitchen wall. In the episode titled "Baggage," which originally aired in 2003, Marie explains that they received the set as a wedding gift and that it has hung on the wall for more than 40 years.
