A fetching little 19th century medicine spoon with a blue onion design. The handle is anchored with two leaves allowing the spoon to stand on a flat surface.

Aside from some age related wear to the circumferential gilding it is in excellent condition. There are similar examples on page 252 of “Antique Medical Instruments” by Elizabeth Bennion.
