This wrought iron primitive antique tasting spoon is one of the larger ones. It measures 5-1/4" inches in diameter and is approx 17-1/2" inches long. It's shallow bowl indicates it was made for tasting the ingredients cooking in a large pot or kettle. The # G.78.93.1. is written on the back of the handle. A true antique piece!
This was purchased from an exhibit in California!!
