Capstan Candlestick 

Spanish, 1550

Good, heavy casting, hand-cut ejection holes. Well turned rims on capstan. A nice example of the form. Ejection holes were needed: the tallow candles of the period were soft and difficult to pull out of the nozzle. (We've not had a capstan for some time, so I jumped at the chance to buy a small collection at a reasonable price.)

Medieval Spoon 

Dutch or English, c. 1550

We like to have one of these small early spoons in the inventory, but haven't been able to find one for quite a while. Here's a good one: with bands around the handle, a great fig-shaped bowl and nice early surface.
