Description

Spoon decorated with relief design. Half of the bowl of the spoon is decorated with leaves and scrolls, and in the middle there are two shields with a crown on top. The handle of the spoon is shaped as a figure, probably the French king Louis XIV, who has a sword hanging from one side of his body and a decoration on his chest.
