Annotation
Flat wooden spoons with small leaf-shaped blades. The outer side of the handle has a carved traditional ornament, and the end is forked. The whole surface of the spoons is covered with embossed lines. Broths and porridges were eaten with such spoons. The stems were decorated with fine carving with moving elements. The spoons were kept in special birch bark or woven cylindrical vessels.
