The spoon handle was made by wrapping flat metal back on itself into the shaft. The seam is evident on the back. The shovel is concave in the shape of a shield, terminating along two diagonal straight edges in a point. The left side of the spoon is cracked. The right side of the spoon has broken off and has been smoothed. The depth of the spoon is shallow.
