About this item

Ritual ladle of wood and coconut shell from Timor Island, Indonesia (circa 1950s). Intricate spoons and ladles were most likely used for large ceremonial feasts and offerings to ancestors. This piece consists of a delicate, wooden carved handle with bird finial. Relatively light in weight, it sits upon a modern, single-prong stand. The bowl of the spoon is formed from coconut shell which is in fair vintage condition commensurate with age and use. It shows characterful, but small nicks, cracks and splits. Upon request a video of the piece can be provided.
