Ruhuna - copper Ear-Spoon
A tiny copper spoon with long handle to clean ear wax. The other end could be a tooth-pick. This item of unknown age is the equivalent of the modern double tipped cotton swab is known in Sinhala as a kang handa (Ear-Spoon).
In the 1999 catalog by Osmund Bopearachchi and Rajah Wickramasinhe titled Ruhuna. An Ancient Civilization Re-visited a similar spoon (N.52) is listed under Miscellaneous Objects
Clearly a health hazard it is probably still used in rural Lanka. I guess the twist on handle will allow one to recognize by touch which end is being inserted :-)
The spoon was scanned at 300 dpi and displayed at 200 dpi. It was obtained in 2001 December directly from farmer who found it via Mr A. Ratnayaka a collector in Katharagama, Lanka.
