19th century Welsh beech spoon

(wear to the handle)
Caernarfonshire seems to have evolved a wooden spoon of a definite type, and the feature characteristic of this type (even shown in the love-spoon of the county) is a strengthening and ridging of the stem until it is often dolphin-shaped….From the “Guide to the collection of Welsh Folk crafts & Industries” by Iorwerth Peate.
