Interpretation

    • This Romano-British spoon is 12.4cm long and has been found in the back of Victoria cave, together with almost half of all known spoons in Britain similar to this one. The shaft is carved in barley sugar fashion, with possibly the profile of a duck at the end. With its pierced and almost flat bowl, the spoon’s function is still unknown. It was probably made around 150-250AD. Accessioned in the T Lord Collection.
