    Hello, There are 5 thrift stores by my home. I am lucky. Maybe 6-7 years ago I saw this and joked with her, "Are you in the drug business now!" haha She wanted $9.00 for the spoon. She was tired of it and I bought it for$5.00. It is well made. That is me in photo, I went to Bank box and took some photos and to get a horse shoe for a dear friend. Anybody have any ideas of what to use this for? I mean legally! haha thanks for looking! Don

      I think its just a nice looking spoon.
      Here in Europe some people hang their spoons on a rack on the wall.

      I'd call it a snuff spoon; a bit more legal and possibly more appropriate considering the age of the spoon.

      Thanks Newtimes and Tall Cakes, maybe it is a snuff spoon, but here in Calif. people think of coke or speed, maybe it is old! wow snuff spoon! hmmm. great!

      great article! Those pipes are quite beautiful!

      great article i agree -- but what a waste of time and money on the drugs -- glad the author wised up -- amazing his female opiate supplier died in seattle washington -- just up the I5 corridor from us

      Any marks on the spoon? You could always use it as a salt spoon...
    12. toracat toracat, 9 years ago
