Slip Top Spoon, 1635









Details

Made, by Daniel Cary, one of the most important spoonmakers of the early 17thC, this is a first class example of a Charles I period silver slip top spoon. The hexagonal stem tapers outwards in typical style towards the terminal and is engraved on the slip-end with "EB" initials. Similarly the hallmarks are appropriate for this form of spoon with a clear bowl mark, two clear marks adjacent to the bowl junction (including the "D" enclosing a "C" maker's mark) and the date letter located towards the end of the shank - the siting of the latter was to prevent the fraudulent addition of a cast terminal post hallmarking. This is a great quality spoon with a good gauge and consequent nice hefty weight. The condition is excellent too, although there are several scratches and very tiny dings in the bowl. A fine example of the type.
