An incomplete cast copper-alloy fragment of an early Post-Medieval spoon, dating c. 1550-1650. Only the base of the handle and the upper section of the bowl survive, with the rest of the object broken away in old damage. The bowl itself would probably have been originally fig shaped, while the handle is sub-oval in section, though the form of its terminal remains unknown due to breakage. A stamped maker's mark consisting a fleur de lys is visible on the upper edge of the bowl as it curves upwards and tapers towards its junction with the handle, which is typically associated with slip…

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.

A fragment of copper alloy spoon. The terminal only of a spoon stem. It is flat and rectangular in section with a widened three-lobed 'trefid' terminal.

A lead alloy sliptop spoon. Broken into two pieces.The stem is oval in cross section with a tapered slip top terminal. The stem has broken away from the bowl where it flattens and starts to flare out. The slightly convex bowl is a broad "fig-shape" and the sides have been folded in in places. There are no visible touch marks. The alloy contains more lead than other metals (probably tin) resulting in it feeling heavy for its size.
