A Superb James I Latten Seal Top Spoon With Maker's Mark And In Exceptional Condition.
During the 16th and 17th century it became common when travelling for people to carry their own personal eating utensils and 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.
Condition is good, commensurate with age and use. Structurally sound. Clear makers mark and you can still just make out some of the seal.
