Literature: Punch ladles were introduced in the early 1700's and differ from other ladles in the fact that they have turned wood or twisted whalebone handles. Originally they had round bowls which were superceded in about 1735 by egg shaped bowls. Later on lips were added and after 1760 they were often inset with silver coins.
