Mysterious Odeon item
For ten years, I’ve owned the most fantastic object. It’s a stainless steel tablespoon. It was originally owned by my late grandmother, and my mother has no idea where she got it.
What makes this spoon so fantastic is what’s stamped on it. On the front of the handle is the ‘O’ logo of the original deco design. On the back, running up the handle, is stamped “ODEON THEATRES”.
I was wondering if anyone here would know quite why Odeon would produce dinnerware (!), and if they had any other information on this strange and wonderful object. I’m still using it, and as it’s such an incongruous thing I will never get rid of it as it makes me stupidly happy!
Sorry for such a random one, but other research has proved fruitless for me…
