Superb Baule/Dan ceremonial spoon with the handle carved in the form of a female holding her breasts. All the evidence from its surface, wear, and oxidation points to significant age. There are no condition problems other than mild wear, signs of use. Spoon-shaped carvings such as this are best described as feast ladles used by their owner to offer food to others during public feasts. Circa 1960

Measures 4" W x 17.5" H
