Ceremonial Spoon

Timor, Indonesia
19th Century

This is a superb example of an early Timor ceremonial spoon. While this spoon is small in scale it is colossal in artistic quality. The creature carved as the handle is as elegant as it is powerful. The imposing expression of the animal transcends this spoon into a true monumental miniature. This example has a fantastic deep patina from tribal use. In excellent condition.

This spoon stands 5.75 inches tall.
