Horn Spoon with Beadwork
Call it a horn spoon, ladle, or scoop.... what is neat about it?
Pre 1840's, they were commonly used for ceremonial purposes. The unique shape of the horn allowed for a Native American warrior to hold the attached leather thong and dip the horn down into a stream for a drink, while remaining mounted on his horse.
Your hornware will last a very long time if properly cared for. Simply wash with soap and luke warm water and dry with soft cloth immidiately following. Submurging in water or consuming hot liquids in your hornware will cause it to loose shape and delaminate.
