Coming from a little collection of curious treen, this is a high quality, elaborate and amazing spoon, made probably boxwood, folding on its axe, finely decorate with a figural sculpture, a monk, hiding his virility under a sculpted hinged cover. A rare and naughty item, so curious! Inside, an old number of previous collection is written.
