Watching with interest I'd like one of those too

What about using a saucer or side plate on the table?

I made a spoon rest platter thingy when I was doing a pottery evening class many years ago but keep it in kitchen next to hob to use it when stirring sauces etc

Laura Ashley.
I have one that has other crockery to match. Lasagne dish /pie dishes. .

Our serving spoons have built in rests to stop the end touching the table.
They work well providing you tap the majority of sauce off, if that makes sense.

I can't find the ones I actually have, but these are similar:

The handle is weighted to keep the tool end off the work tops or tables.

I hope that's making sense. grin

My mother has several of these

My dishes don't have lids so serving spoons are left in the dishes.

Just back from the local garden centre where I happened to overhear 2 women discussing the spoon rest which were in the sale - colourful, ceramic, but I didn't pay much attention.
I like Anthropologie and they have quite a few - www.anthropologie.com/en-gb/shop/sissinghurst-castle-spoon-rest2?cm_mmc=UK_G-_-PLA-_-Home_Gadgets-_-7542298303041&gclid=Cj0KEQiAqdLDBRDD-b2sv6-i6MsBEiQAkT3wAvCBj-ypjkH1F8iBXR34V7JxUFTSE2_WXy6F-EMPF4gaAoI78P8HAQ

I saw some lovely ones, just as you describe, in TK Maxx, they looked liked marble. I fancied one but they were about £15 and I couldn't justify the expense on myself!

I've had one of these for years - it's melamine so is fairly tough. It may not be your style but it's not hugely expensive either.

Caramel - I've just been sucked into a whole world of Anthropologie home! It's gorgeous.

RoganJosh - isn't it just! I love it, but mostly just have to fantasise!

A device called a plate. Goes in the dishwasher afterwards and is multi purpose.

I have a couple of melamine ones from dunelm Mill.

I also saw them at boundary mill if you have one nearby. Garden centres are full of them too.
