Gold toothpick/ear-spoon on short (modern) chain, early 1700s, found in Peru. 5.6 grams, about 2" long. An ornate little piece, hand-carved in high-grade (22K?) gold, with sharp, scimitar-like toothpick on one end and tiny, curved scoop on the other, with fleur-de-lis design in between topped with a loop, into which a previous owner has inserted a chain for wearing as a pendant, similar to specimens found on Spanish shipwrecks but this example found on land in Peru years ago. With Pearson photo-certificate.
