S/3849 Antique Treen Welsh Rustic Sycamore Invalid Spoon of the Georgian Period
An interesting Welsh rustic shaped spoon, often referred to as an invalid spoon (see Treen for the Table by Levi on page 121). The elongated bowl, with a S shaped handle, has carved Roman Numerals II. It is also very unusual in having a hook on the reverse, which we have never come across before on this type of spoon. It is carved from a single piece of wood and has a warm colour and well used patination.
