Story:

This is a replica spoon of the anointing spoon which is part of the coronation regalia. The original spoon (held at the Tower of London) is made of gold and dates back to the 13th century, making it the oldest coronation piece. In the coronation ceremony Holy oil is poured from the Ampulla, which is in the form of a gold eagle, into the spoon. The spoon is then applied by the officiating Bishop or Archbishop to the new sovereigns head, breast and palms. Original coronation regalia - spoon dimensions: 26.7 x 5.1 cm.
