Description

Small tine with acanthus carving. The elliptical box is shaped and hallowed from a single piece of wood. The sides taper to a separate base, which appears to be affixed with adhesive. Two acanthus trendils form prongs which secure the lid. The tip of one prong is missing. The handle is formed from two acanthus leaves.
