Combination spoon and fork

On display

Three-pronged fork, silver, parcel-gilt, the stem with a sliding piece that locks the hinge. The finial on a fluted column is a female head and armless torso. The prongs of the fork fit in to the back of the egg-shaped bowl to form a spoon. The back of the bowl is engraved with a shield of arms, flanked by the letters 'P' and 'C'. Below the shield, left, is scratched the figure '9' and opposite it what may be intended as a '1' (interpreted by M. Wellby as a date 1591).
