Item: 6 x Teaspoons Description: Trefid Hallmark: London circa
1680 by B? within heart Dimensions: 100mm; 36 grams
very rare and charming set of six 17th C teaspoons. Single trefid teaspoons
are difficult to find, so finding a straight set of six is quite a coup. Not
only are they a straight set - but also in fine condition throughout with
original bowl shapes intact and a good patina.
Each spoon is marked with maker's mark only "B?"
within a heart-shaped punch. The marks pre-date the introduction of the
Britannia Standard in 1697 and stylistically date from the 1680's. They bear
"EM" initials to the reverse terminal.
