Possible Roman Spoon ?

Post by Steve_T » Tue Mar 13, 2018 8:31 pm

Hi all
I think I might have a Roman spoon, it has some age to it, be interested on anyone thoughts, have looked at the PAS there are some close examples also up to Medieval, lots of Roman stuff coming up from this area though.

Looks like a more modern rats tail type

Interesting that the bowl tip end is wider than shoulder end. They were more common pre 1760

Guess we will never know for sure. If you look hard enough I am sure you will find a similar spoon in just about every date range going.

Even today we have a bewildering number spoon designs
