Elizabethan Seal Top Spoon, 1584









Details

This is a superb example of an Elizabeth I period silver seal top spoon made by one of the most important maker's of the period - Patrick Brue with maker's mark "mullet over an annulet". Patrick Brue (or Brew) was a key member of the dynasty of 16th and 17th century specialist spoonmakers than began with Nicholas Bartholomew in the mid-16th century and through master and apprentice relationships included many other major spoonmakers including the likes of Daniel Cary, William Cawdell and Stephen Venables. This is a great quality spoon with a massive baluster gilt seal that bears later dot-pricked initials to the flat terminal "MC" under "1642". The spoon is in fine condition with a good, unworn bowl and just a little dent to the edge of the seal top. A major bonus is the excellent group of hallmarks to the reverse of the stem.
