Scoop or ladle, crudely made from horn, perhaps the horn of the big horn sheep. The horn was steamed and the tip bent back; the bowl was opened out never smoothed off either inside or on its back. The handle was shaved down, and a hole passes transversely through the tip for a strap, not present. This may either be unfinished, or else come from a tradition in which ladles were not well carved.

- Curator's comments
- The registration Slip was written in two sections: a description, with later designation 'Nootka Sound?'. This may be the correct place of origin, but it is also possible that this ladle is not from the Northwset Coast. (JCK,15/6/1995; plus additional description etc.).
- Not on display
- Fair: there is a chip and crack in the edge of the scoop.
