This exceptional antique Victorian sterling silver gilt spoon is realistically modelled in the form of a besom*/broom.

The bowl of the spoon is formed by the concave rounded brush embellished with the naturalistic strands of straw/twigs.

The bowl is conjoined to the handle with a traditional string binding ornamentation.

The stout pole handle is encompassed with an impressive texture replicating the details of the wood's grain.

* The word 'besom' is a historical word used to describe a traditionally constructed broom; a bundle of twigs tied to a pole.
