Pair of Cockle Plates 

English or Flemish, c.1725

These small plates were used in taverns for serving small shellfish, such as winkles and cockles. These have served a whole lot of people -- heavily used surface with great character.

Trefid Spoon 

English, c.1685

Very good example of the form, with crisp, ribbed rat tail on back of bowl, and owner's initials C D. Old, nicely pitted surface.

Trefid Spoon 

English, 1680-1710

Nice "reduced" trefid spoon -- the trefid finial reduced to an arch and two "horns." Dark "excavated" finish -- from river mud again? Worn Rose and Crown touch on reverse.

Large Wavy-Edge Charger 

English, c.1730-50

Wavy-edge plates are quite common, wavy-edge dishes turn up now and again, but this is the only wavy-edge charger we have seen -- and it's a desirable 20-inches to boot!. Surely you must have an empty 20-inches somewhere! Maker's touch (barely legible) on underside for James Spackman, London, (1704-1758). Heraldic armed fist holding a pen on rim.


Details and more photos. 



Multi-Reeded Charger 

English, c.1685

Old, dark, dull surface untouched for centuries -- and an impressive 20-inch size. It's what you're looking for, or it isn't. No Maker's touch undecipherable, but four "hallmarks" imitating those on silver.
