Default Where does this metal spoon come from?

Does anyone know where this metal spoon is from? I think some place in Indonesia, but I can't pinpoint which culture.

Thanks!

Based on a character, I think Thailand/Siam.

Thank you for the comments! Does anyone have a link or photos to compare? I have been searching for "Thai spoon" but can not find anything that resembles this. Perhaps it is from a minority group of Thailand?

You may Google for: siam ceremonial spoon
You'll see some similar. Also, see THIS LINK

I've seen almost identical spoons described as being from Timor island. I also seen similar shaped spoons but with horse motif similar to designs produced by the Batak of Indonesia. Does anyone have a differing opinon on their origin that points to Indonesia?

I have seen this same type of spoon in silver galleries in Kota Gede.

I do not know the origin of the design.
