Spoon with Handle in Shape of Bird's Head

Catalogue Description:
This extremely graceful spoon is carved from one piece of horn that has beautiful amber and brown striations in its coloring. The bowl is very thin and large. The handle is a round delicate tube that curves from the bowl and after a length curves back almost 180 degrees to culminate in a water bird head with a long open beak.
