A very rare and seldom seen Georgian period, pearwood carved wooden spoon.
This item which has the original owners initials I.A and date 1796 on the handle, is a truly remarkable survivor.
It has a deep patination to the wood built up from over two hundred years of use ,and it has a wonderful rats tail design to the underneath of the bowl.
An absolute stunning piece.
Ex. Private collection.
As with all of my antiquities and coins this item comes complete with a certificate of authenticity.
