SPOON

Unique ID: IOW-A4C3D0

Object type certainty: Certain
Workflow status: Published Find published

An incomplete silver-gilt spoon of Late Medieval or Early Post-Medieval date, fifteenth or sixteenth century (AD 1400 - AD 1600).

Most of the bowl is missing due to an old break. The stem, lozenge-shaped in section throughout its length, is bent to one side and terminates with an elongated acorn knop. The lower part of the knop has moulded decoration.

A similar incomplete silver-gilt spoon has been recorded from the parish of East Dean and Friston, West Sussex (Treasure Annual Report 2005, ref. 2005 T361).
