Beautifully printed bone china spoons The very fact that these small, elegant British designed and produced spoons (£5 each) are made from bone china marks them out as special occasionware. Add to that the quirky print of an old engraving and they assume a presence way beyond their delicate proportions. When not being used for serving jams and condiments or stirring tea, they would make a pretty wall display. GILLIAN DE BONO

A deliciously elegant handcrafted cheeseboard Handcrafted from acacia wood and steel, the Swoop cheeseboard and knife (£79) evoke a fish diving silently beneath the still surface of a lake. It was designed by Aaron Johnson for the Santa Fe-based family firm Nambé, and is one of a range of elegant, distinctive homewares based on collaborations with acclaimed designers from around the world. RAPHAELLE HELMORE

A chic sculptural goblet Traditional Italian craftsmanship meets contemporary elegance in this sculptural drinking vessel (£100) by Padua-based silversmith Zanetto. Hand‑hammered in a silver-plated alloy, the coolly irregular rim accentuates the contrast between the textured matte exterior and high‑shine surface within. CHRISTINA OHLY EVANS
