Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

An incomplete post-medieval cast copper alloy spoon bowl. It is oval shaped and concave in profile. The reverse has a slightly raised oblong tringle, the base of which is oriented towards the stem and is located where the stem would have met the bowl. The stem is missing and only a small portion of the stem remains attached to the bowl. There is damage to the bowl near the front and the surface is covered in corrosion products. It is likely to date from the 17-18th centuries. Similar examples may be found on the database GLO-B88F31; BUC-171312; and SUSS-B3F337.

The spoon is 38.09 mm long, 18.84 mm wide, 1.59 mm thick and weighs 4.95 g.
