All homes have a Domovoi, who is the soul of one (or all) of the deceased members of the family, making the him a part of ancestor worship traditions. Traditionally living at the threshold under the entrance, in the attic, or mainly in the hearth or behind the stove, everyone took care to not disturb the smoldering remains of a fire to keep their ancestors from falling through the grate.

This small intricately brass cast Domovoi talisman has him holding a lock, spoon, & piece of piece of precious amber.
“To eat by spoonful” refers to one having plenty of something. In Slavic countries, a spoon had its place first as a household and table utensil, as an amulet against hunger, & was also alleged to increase prosperity. This little spoon “scoops” money, & stores it in your wallet and is alleged to enrich its owner, bring good luck in business and get rid of debt.
Amber amulets were worn as protection from diseases and against being killed in a battle. People believed that amber “pulled out” a disease from the body and “attracted” good luck – in the same way as it attracts small objects if you slightly rub it. It was believed that amber adornments averted misfortune, kept its owner safe from black magic, cast out devils, guarded one from the evil eye, brought luck in love, and made it’s owner stronger and cleverer.
