Sucket Spoon, c1680







Details

This spoon has a combination of a heart-shaped spoon bowl and two-pronged fork and is known as a sucket spoon. Suckets were a late 17th century delicacy consisting of dried fruit and citrus peels in a sweet syrup. The fork end was designed for spearing the fruit, while the small spoon was used for scooping up the syrup. 

 

The flat plank like stem, in the manner of early trefid spoons, helps date the spoon to the 1670's/80's when sucket spoons were especially fashionable. Sucket spoons from the 17th century are very rarely fully marked and often not marked at all, as per this example. This Carolean period spoon is in fine condition and the short rattail although a little crude is undoubtedly original.
