1002 spoons

Jurgen Lehl's collections fascinate me. His spoon collection is being exhibited later this week in Tokyo. As described:

New and old, elaborately carved and simple, big and small, carved from wood, coconut, horn, shell and bamboo,made of iron, brass and gourd,hammered from silver, copper, bronze and stainless steel, salt spoons, tea spoons, ceremonial spoons, tea ceremony spoons, serving spoons, ladles, and jewelry made of spoons.
Many were designed and made especially for this show, while others were found in Vietnam, China, Japan, Indonesia, Timor, the Philippines, Korea, India, Africa and Europe.
