A post medieval copper-alloy latten spoon knop dating to the period c. AD 1500 - 1700. The knop is of the seal top type with a flat top c.14.0mm in diameter. Below the top is a constriction, below whch the spoon widens into a conical collar which tapers into a narrow collar. Below this, the spoon tapers further before expanding into a collar and termionates in an old break.

Similar examples are illustrated by Homer (1975:38) who categorises them as Seal Top types B , fluted or scrolled baluster seals, depending on their decoration. He dates both types to the 16th century.
