Description: A copper-alloy slip-top spoon. It has a fig-shaped bowl with a faint circular touchmark located below the stem on the concave surface. The stem which is rectangular in section has been cut at a sloping angle at the terminal, the style is referred to as ''slipped in the stalk.''

The slip-top spoon, which first became popular in the later 15th century, enjoyed a revival during the reign of Charles I, as its plain shape suited the puritanical mood of the period.

Dognose Spoon https://www.ukdfd.co.uk/v46/artefact/post-medieval-to-modern/spoons/dognose-spoon-7397.html Sun, 10 Jun 2007 00:00:00 GMT Spoons Dognose Spoon  
Description: A small silver dognose spoon of the late Stuart to early Georgian period. The dognose style was a development of the earlier trefid form (see UKDFD 3843), and occurred at the end of the 17th century. The spoon has a rat-tail support under the bowl, a design that was gradually superseded by a much shorter strengthening from about 1715. The spoon appears to be hallmarked, but the marks are severely abraded and illegible. There is some damage to the handle.
