Description: This elderly spatula was collected from Moi Biri Bay and is an extremely rare form. The Pentagon shaped terminal has been pierced for the suspension of additional shells, decorated with simple zigzags. Like most of the oldest spatulas, it has a groove around the outside edge. The patina is consistent with a much loved and handled object that has then been abandoned for a generation.
