FULL DESCRIPTION

We may state that the little gold spoon is a grave find which probably given to the deceased for medicinal purposes. The style and technique allow to date the object to between 400 and 800, therefore during the Franconian period. This grave gift with a high-quality finish and refinement allow us to assume that it was included in the last resting place of a distinguished person.
