    A lucky flea market find from decades ago, hidden in a junk/crap box :-D

    A Napoleonic ear spoon with 3 toothpick/blades hidden in the handle!

    7.2cm (2.7/8") long.

    18 carats gold with the rooster's head hallmark, 1809/1819, it was marked again with the eagle's head of 1847/1919 and an old script capital E I have to identify...

    For your information, yes, I use it! But only for cleaning my ears ;-))
