This is a silver spoon that was gifted by the Emperor and Empress in Japan at the birth of their granddaughters. It is a baby spoon that devised a curve of possession so that it is easy to grip firmly even with the small hand of a child.

In the West, there is a saying that "a child born with a silver spoon will be happy," and there is a custom of giving silver spoons at birthday celebration and baptism.
