Hook End (or hook-handle) basting spoons are peculiar to Ireland,
and date mostly from the mid-18th century.
Their unique characteristic of these spoons is the broad over-scrolled terminal
bearing a rather stylish large crest.
These serving utensils are mentioned in text as hanging from vessels,
and being "good for drawing poultry"(removing poultry insides).
