In Victorian times after a heavy night out it was common practice to clean the tongue with a tongue scraper. This example is made from a flexible band of tortoise-shell with ivory handles.

In the resting position it is flat but would have been held between thumb and index finger of each hand and used in a U-shape. It is in perfect condition.
