Item: Spoon Description: Trefid Hallmark: Exeter
1705 by John Avery Dimensions: 208mm long; 43grams
Comments: A superb example of a fully marked
Exeter trefid spoon. This spoon has a lot going for it: fine condition,
good set of hallmarks, original betrothal initials with date and an
unusual form of beading to the rattail. The latter is made up as a central
rattail with beading, but this is enclosed by an elongated "V"
with a single bead at the top of each line.
The condition is excellent with a full bowl and fine
patina. The Britannia Standard hallmarks are all legible with a clear
"E" date letter and "Av" new standard maker's
