Fine Burl "Ram's Horn" or "Fiddle-Scrolled" Ladle.....SOLD
Northeast America, ca. late 18th century. Carved from highly figured ash burl in richly colored unvarnished surface. The handle terminates in a scroll that stands proud in the form of a ram's horns, a shape seen in the period fireplace equipment like peels.
