Spoon - Mary Queen of Scots

Westair Reproductions

A Mary Queen of Scots seal top spoon.

Seal top spoons were very popular from about 1560 until 1670. During this time it was customary when travelling to carry personal cutlery as well as writing materials. Most letters and documents were sealed with wax and it was for this purpose that spoons were often manufactured  with the owner's seal on the end of the handle.

The seal on this reproduction spoon is similar to the coat of arms on a coin struck to commemorate Mary's marriage to Lord Darnley in 1565. The spoon is also decorated with the thistle of Scotland.

Spoon - Roman

Westair Reproductions

A Roman Spoon

Wealthy Romans loved to eat fancy food and often threw lavish dinner parties and feasts. Hosting a party was a great way for people to show off their wealth and power. The Romans usually ate with their fingers but would also use cutlery, including knives and spoons.

This spoon is a reproduction of one that would have been owned by a wealthy Roman. It has a panther in front of a small 3-branched tree decorating the bowl. It was used in the 3rd and 4th centuries at cult feasts that were probably associated with the Roman god, Bacchus, as the panther was closely associated with him.

The pointed handle would have been used to extract meat from bones, to eat
snails, or to open and eat shellfish.

Spoon - Tudor

Westair Reproductions

A Tudor spoon

During the Tudor period, tableware made from pewter would have been used
in the homes of the wealthy, such as Hampton Court Palace, and by officers on
ships. Pewter tableware was hardwearing and would have included dishes, plates,
tankards and spoons.

Pewter spoons were sometimes engraved with the maker's mark or initial, or with
the owner's family coat of arms, emblem or initial. Owning a pewter spoon was a
way of proclaiming one's wealth and status in society. Some people carried their
own spoons about with them.

This reproduction spoon is based on a Writhen or twisted knop spoon. The
bulb-shaped knop on top of the spoon was formed from several twisted strands
of wire, thick in the middle and smaller at the ends. The maker's, or owner's,
fleur-de-lis mark is stamped onto the top of the bowl. The original was made in
London in 1500.
