This spoon is rather unusual in form for the Northwest coast which is further compounded by the ambiguous provenance given to the spoon as Otahiiti which is the old name for Tahiiti. The original European tribal names and, where possible, current tribal names have both been given in separate GLT fields.; The undecorated form of the spoon may indicate its everyday use as opposed to the ceremonial use of the decorated types (G.Crowther).; Collected by: ?Lee.T.F
