NON-IRISH ANTIQUITY : GIRONA FINDS

Object Name

Ear and tooth pick

Description

'Combined tooth and ear-pick in the form of a dolphin: the long snout forms the tooth-pick, the flattened tail the ear-pick. The dolphin's nicely modelled eye presumably watches the entire procedure with distaste'. Flanagan, L. 'Ireland's Armada Legacy' (1988) p.199
