Interpretation

    • Post medieval cosmetic spoon - parallels found in Norfolk made of silver

    • An incomplete cast copper alloy spoon that could be an ear scoop, hoof or medical instrument, probably from a chatelaine set. The implement has a small rounded scoop at one end which appears to be complete. The shank below is narrower with an S-twisted (barley twist) handle and tapers out to the break. This object could be Roman to early Medieval in date 200 to 700AD, though a 14th to 16th century date is more probable.
