Scope and content

This object is made of one continuous piece of light brown colored bamboo wood which has oil finish. The handle of the object is flat at the bottom with a rounded end. There is a hole drilled into this end. A quarter of the way up the object the handle changes into a cylindrical stick that is quite long and curves upward slightly before reaching the top. At the top there is a hand shaped carving. The fingers of the carving are curved upward creating a type of rake that can be used to scratch peoples backs. On the backside of the back scratcher in black paint an almost worn off there is some Chinese lettering on the object.
