Ritual Spoon
Timor, Indonesia
Early 20th century
Provenance: Wim Minderman, The Hague, acquired in the 1950’s

Very finely carved spoons of this quality are not easily found today. A flock of birds, interspersed with geometric designs are playfully carved everywhere on both the front and back of the spoon’s handle. Deeply patinated and worn, this piece is a must have for a collector of spoons.

Height: 7.75 inches / 19.7 cm
