Silver, parcel-gilt. The spoon's oval bowl is attached by four loops on its back to a two-fronged fork. The base of the handle is hinged and the folding mechanism held in place by a silver-gilt slide in the form of a grotesque mask. The hexagonal handle has an ornate parcel-gilt finial in the form of a female term, whose head unscrews.
