Here's a beautiful old Asian hand-carved tea scoop with a handle of turtles. It's carved of bone or horn (NOT ivory).
The scoop has a highly polished smooth finish that makes it a functional kitchen tool...to scoop tea, coffee, flour, sugar.
The scoop measures 4 3/4 inches long. It's 1 1/2 inches wide at the mouth of the scoop. It's 1 inch thick and weighs 59 grams.
The turtle carving is wonderful and detailed with one turtle resting its head on the other's back.
Excellent condition. Circa 1950s.
