Lead alloy spoon fragment. Cast rectangular section stem from a spoon, with three facets to its upper side. The stem expands slightly at the end abutting the bowl [which is lost], though there is no indication of the stem having extended below it. A grey tint and fair condition may point to a relatively recent date. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1750-1850.
