  8. Pair of Ritual Fire Spoons. Tibet, early 20th century. Longest spoon is 35 1/2" (90 cm.). Made from iron to be used during a fire ceremony. The round spoon is a receptacle; the other is used to pour the offering onto the fire. The spoons are thought of as male and female, the joining of wisdom and means. Each spoon unscrews in the middle, at the dragon's head. Collected in the 1930's in China; we bought them at an auction at Phillips in NYC in the 1990s. $3,500.
