Charles I sterling silver Provincial seal-top spoon of good gauge. The finial is gilt and has two contemporary sets of initials pricked on the flat top: CF over LB. The lower initials are pushed to the left a little in order the avoid the slight casting fault. The finial is joined to the hexagonal stem by a lap joint, as is customary with Provincial spoons. A mark of a bird is struck in the front of the bowl and three times on the back of the stem. One slight scratch at the top of the stem by the finial and this goes half way across the width of the stem.

Maker :- Possibly the Quick family of Barnstaple, Devon.
Very good. There is a slight casting fault on the edge of the top of the finial. This occurred during the making of the spoon . The hallmarks are good.
