The oldest Cutlery in the World!
Spoons range among the oldest pieces of cutlery in history. There sure used to be knives as well, but those were primarily used for cutting raw meat off the bone not to eat it. Spoons on the other hand served as the primary means to consume food for several thousands of years. Last came forks. These utensils only became fashionable a few hundred years ago.
The earliest spoons were either carves from wood or bone. The latter is true for the product at hand. Spoons like this have also been used during Roman times. Depending on the richness of embellishments those eating tools could cost small fortunes. But also lesser men could enjoy the beauty of bone made spoons. They just had to trade off some of the decorations.
The spoon at hand mostly resembles an eating utensil that would have probably be found in a middle class household.It comes ready to use and is fully functional - so, not only for decoration purposes. Bone is a very strong material, nonetheless, it should not be used to stir fry. The temperatures inside a frying pan or a boiling pot are too high and could potentially damage the bone material.
If for yourself or as a gift, this gem of a spoon will brighten the day of its new owner!

Note: Bone or horn utensils have been used as crockery in many countries for centuries. However, the German legislator demands for their use a food law certification according to the Food and Consumer Goods Act (LFBG), which unfortunately is very expensive and would have a negative effect on the favorable selling price of our goods. So we offer this product almost only as a prop or replica, which is at least by definition not certified for food.
