Brass Spoons (above)
Reproduction, handmade early brass spoons, made to scale from lightweight kettle scrap brass as many originals were. I followed the hammer marks on the originals also, to see how they worked, and it went well. These are copied from originals found in Massachusetts and are nicely lightweight.
