Abstract

Slender object has a small olivary end supported on a solid narrow shaft. Shaft increases in diameter slightly as it approaches the spoon. Between shaft and spoon is a bead inscribed with semicircles. An unadorned bead encircles the shaft just above the bowl of the spoon. The bowl of the spoon suggests a long oval shape, creased along the spine into a V-shape. The bowl of the spoon is 5.4 cm; the tip of the spoon is broken off.
