Victorian Runcible Spoon, 1839




Details

An excellent example of an early Victorian fiddle pattern runcible spoon (aka pickle or chutney spoon or spork). Made by the top quality silversmith William Eaton, this spoon remains in fabulous original condition and benefits from having no personalised engravings.

 

The runcible spoon appears in two works by Edward Lear: The Owl & The Pussy Cat ("They dined on mince and slices of quince, which they ate with a runcible spoon") and Twenty-Six Nonsense Rhymes and Pictures ("The Dolomphious Duck, who caught Spotted Frogs for her dinner with a Runcible Spoon")
