The seal top has traces of gilding and a scratched initialled HW over 1631 over MH.
The bowl is fig-shaped and the spoon has a tapering facetted stem.
The spoon has very clearly stamped hallmarks, an extremely attractive patina and a very impressive list of provenances. The hallmarks are illustrated in Kent, T. Sussex Silver and its Makers.
