CHARLES I. A very fine Seal Top Spoon made in London in 1633 by Richard Crosse.


This very fine example has a fig shaped bowl and hexagonal stem which terminates in a baluster seal top, beautifully chased and palely gilded. The top is scratch engraved with a cross motif. The bowl is very well marked with the Leopards Head Crowned and the other three marks are very well struck on the stem. This is an exceptional example, with good bowl and colour and comes from a desirable reign. Richard Crosse was a prolific specialist Spoon maker, who was apprenticed to the Spoon maker Robert Jygges in 1625.

Length: 6.25 inches.
