WOODEN LADLE, PUGET SOUND, PACIFIC NORTHWEST, WASHINGTON STATE. A rare wood ladle from the Upper Puget Sound area of Washington, circa early 19. This astonishingly preserved ladle was obtained from a private Seattle collection.
Atop of the handle are multiple sets of triangular indents, making for a highly decorative design. The very long handle slopes down to a rather wide, yet surprisingly shallow spoon. The opposite end-handle is curved and notched along the lower end. Minor abrasions, dings and nicks along length and spoon. This precious artifact HAS NOT been refurbished, oiled or polished in any way.
The indigenous peoples of the Pacific Northwest Coast are the pre-Columbian inhabitants of the Pacific Northwest Coast, their descendants, and many ethnic groups who identify with those historical peoples. At one time the region had the most densely populated areas of continental North America for the land and waters provide an abundance of food and resources. This RARE spoon-ladle is among those creative endeavors. A common ladle doesnt HAVE to be so beautiful; for probably ceremonial/spiritual reasons, this one is!
