A wonderful antique Welsh rat tailed spoon with lovely chip carved arched handle to both the front and back of the spoon.

On the reverse the treen spoon is dated 1779 with the initials NA.

Similar to the one illustrated In Treen for the Table page 122.

Note its size photographed next to a teaspoon, it's only about 12 cm long in total.
