A post-medieval cast copper-alloy (latten) spoon, surviving complete. The bowl is oval generally rounded, but slightly more steeply at the stem end. There is a maker's mark of a 'I R (with spoon)', on the front of the bowl near the stem. There are pellets above and below each letter. The stem is flat and connected straight to the edge of the bowl with no strengthening tail on the back. The stem terminates in an integral fluted baluster seal top, somewhat distorted; the seal top seems plain. There are extensive traces of a white metal coating on the bowl's internal surface. The bowl…

A post-medieval cast copper-alloy (latten) spoon bowl, detached from the stem following old damage. The bowl is sub-oval with a wider, more squared off end near the stem (the shoulders) and fairly straight sides. There is a maker's mark of I spoon R?, punched on the front of the bowl near the stem. This latter has been broken at its junction with the bowl. There are extensive traces of a white metal coating on the bowl's interior. The bowl shape is consistent with a latten trifid spoon in latten dated c. 1680 by Homer (1975, 46; ref. f), thought it is similar to the slightly earli…

A post-medieval copper-alloy (latten) spoon, incomplete having lost its knop to old damage. The bowl is oval, generally rounded, but slightly more steeply at the stem end. There is a maker's mark of a fleur-de-lis stamped on the front of the bowl near the stem. The stem is flat and connected straight to the edge of the bowl with no strengthening tail on the back. It is rectangular with rounded corners in cross-section. The bowl is 64.5mm long, 46.3mm wide and 13.4mm max. deep. The bowl shape is consistent with seal top spoons which have a long floruit from c. 1550 onwards. …

A copper-alloy spoon handle terminal of the baluster knop type. The terminal starts with a small circular knop with collar in the centre of a biconvex disc. Below the disk the terminal narrows, then expands slighty to an oval knop with median incised line. Below is a waist at around the centre of the knop before the object flares to a larger oval knop. Below this the terminal narrows with two final collars and then the narrow handle. The handle has broken just after the narrowing and has been lost. The break is old and corroded; the piece is generally corroded, with red/brown metal wh…

A copper-alloy ('latten') spoon handle terminal of the baluster seal knop type. There is just a stub of the stem of the handle surviving: enough to show that its cross-section was sub-circular with a diameter of c. 3.4mm. The knop begins with a double circular collar; the baluster part then flares out to a diameter of 8.2mm. Above the baluster are a further pair of collars. The knop then flares out into a sub-circular seal top, c. 12.6mm in diameter and flat on the upper side. This type of spoon knop was common from the mid-16th to the mid-17th century. Moore (1999, 5) attributes t…

A fragment from a cast copper-alloy spoon of post-medieval date. The fragment comprises the top of the bowl and a short length of the handle tapering like a 'rat-tail' on the underside of the bowl. The handle is trapezoidal in cross-section. The break to the top of the bowl is diagonal and old, around the point at which the handle terminates. The fragment is largely grey but with some small patches of light-green corrosion product suggesting a leaded copper alloy.

A copper-alloy ('latten') spoon handle terminal of the baluster seal knop type. There is just a stub of the stem of the handle surviving: enough to show that its cross-section was sub-oval with a diameter of c. 5.9mm. The knop begins with a shallow double circular collar; the baluster part then flares out to a width of 9.5mm. The baluster is decorated with longitudinally incised lines. Above the baluster are a further pair of collars, the upper larger and decorated with longitudinally incised lines. The knop then flares out into a sub-oval seal top, 13.8 by 11.6mm, though now abraded,…
