ladle model (food processing & storage); ladle model (food service)

Model of a wooden scoop with a long handle. A label with the word 'Gukse' inscribed in handwriting adheres to the inside of the bowl. 'Gukse' is a wooden vessel used either as a drinking cup, with a short handle, or as a ladle; this one with a long handle probably had the latter function.
