ladle (food processing & storage)

Ladle made from cork and wood. One piece of flat cork has been curved and joined to itself at each end to form a deep cylinder. Another flat piece of cork has been cut into a circular shape, with a point at one side and joined onto one end of the cylinder to create the bowl of the ladle. A piece of wooden dowel pierces through one side of the cylinder and out of the other, to form a handle.
Label: Blue cardboard tag with the object reads "Sardinia 1959 Dr. Frommer"
