    I have this lovely looking brass spoon that would be great for ice cream scooping.

    It has a wooden handle, and is very ornate and solid.

    No makers markings.

    I can't find similar. Any ideas on purpose, age, origin etc. please?

    Is the handle material wood, or horn? Thanks...

    The bowl of the spoon has been poorly acid etched.

    The shape is that of a potato spoon.:) My favourite spoon as a child, because with those cheeks it looked like it was always smiling. A happy spoon.;)
    I have to say, it looks like it could be (water)buffalo horn. Either way, it needs a bit of TLC.

    The thickness of the bowl shown at the rim, along with the graininess of the pattern, tell me it was cast, perhaps in sand. I don't see evidence of acid etching...bicbw.
