A 17th century round-bowl pewter spoon, possibly Dutch
The flattened-stem with central wire-core and gently splayed-end, two crowned hammer marks to rear of stem, 16.7cm
According to Brownsword & Homer, Pewter Society Journal, Vol. 6, No.5, pp.83-97, the crowned hammer mark is found on Dutch pewter as late as the 17th century. The flat-stem and the round bowl found here point to a 17th century date. However, the presence of an iron-core in the stem is often attributed to a 14/15th century date; see Christie's, The Little Collection, May 2007, lot 39, for a spoon of similar form attributed to the 14th century.
