Annotation
Wooden spoon with a leaf-like shallow blade and a bent handle. The handle is decorated at its end with carving, and has a diamond-shaped hole and a round hole. Wooden spoons were made by men, and kept in the female part of the dwelling place. They were often hung on a nail by the shaped holes in the handle.
