spoon (food service)

Long-handled wooden spoon. The bowl has a pointed base. The base of the handle has an elbow, and the handle tapers towards the tip. The handle is rounded. There is a small area of engraved design between the bowl and handle. When viewed from the rear the shape of the spoon is reminiscent of a stingray. There is evidence that there was once a label inside the bowl, but this is now missing.
