Late Ching Period porcelain spoon exported from China in the late 1800's (Turn of the Century) for the large overseas Chinese community in the Malay Strait Settlements of Penang and Malacca. This type of porcelain has been called Kitchen Ching for its utilitarian nature. Kitchen Ching porcelain was used daily by members of the household. These spoons are not particularly colorful but are genuine and fairly old. The spoon shows a bit of wear around edges due to age, otherwise in fine condition. There is an old crack on the front of the spoon (see photo). Spoon was purchased by my father in Penang, Malaysia where he owned an Southeast Asian antique shop in the mid 1970's early 1980's.

Spoon Dimensions: 1 3/4 inches wide by 4 1/2 inches in length. Weight: 1.1 ounces
