Ladle Horny Toad

1100 AD-1300 AD

Inspired by a Mesa Verde Black-on-White ladle with a horny toad motif, housed at the Chapin Mesa Archaeological Museum. The first ladles were half-gourds. When pottery appeared the half-gourd was copied in clay. Ladles were no doubt used exactly as they are today- for dipping & pouring liquids of all kinds.

This ladle comes with a waxed cotton loop making it a charming and whimsical Christmas ornament!

Lead-free, microwave and dishwasher safe. Approximately 3" x 1".  Handcrafted by Designs by Anna in Durango, Colorado.
