A fragment of a medieval silver ear scoop, part of a toilet implement that often combines with a toothpick at the other end. This example consists of the bowl and base of the stem only. The bowl is tear-drop shaped and 'C' shaped in cross section.The stem has beeen broken off close to the bowl of the ear scoop. It appears to be twisting in cross section at the break which suggests that the stem was probably twisted.

Silver ear scoop. Cast teaspoon with a rounded spatulate terminal to its handle with a thickened end and short central ridge at its back, and with the bowl reduced to a small acorn-shaped scoop. This is all that remains of a bowl whose union with the stem lacked reinforcement, though the stem became thicker towards the bowl. The trimming of the bowl may have taken place after heavy wear, but the smoothed and blunted edges to its stub suggest the conversion of the spoon to a different function. With long use, the edge of a silver spoon bowl can wear down to an extremely thin sharp edge…

TREASURE CASE : 2015 T106. An incomplete silver toilet implement of medieval date. The implement is an ear scoop comprised of a sub-ovate scoop with concave front and convex reverse. The scoop tapers to an integral circular sectioned S-twisted shaft which terminates in a worn break. Cosmetic implements such as this ear scoop have been used over a long period of time from the Roman period onwards. The form of this example however, with the twisted handle, suggests it is later in date. Numerous similar cosmetic articles have been reported as Treasure and recorded on the PAS databa…

Silver toothpick and ear-scoop. The toothpick is cast in the form of a triangular-sectioned bird's talon (now bent and distorted with point missing) emerging from the fleshy part of the claw which is decorated with tiny stamped annulets, this in turn emerges from acanthus leaves with a collared moulding just beyond the mid-point, from which springs the oval-sectioned shaft of the ear-scoop. There is a circular pierced lug in the centre of the upper edge containing a silver wire loop (10mm). The underside of the shank for the scoop, adjacent to the circular bowl, is stamped with a coun…
