Sometimes I really don't get to spend time with an object until its time to ship it to its new owner. Such as the case with two Tuareg (Mali) metal alloy spoons. These spoons along with other African-origin spoons have spent most of their time in storage. To me, it's rewarding to deaccession objects whose time with the collection have been as such. The video shows one of the spoons with its traditional carved handle and beautiful etchings.
