EDINBURGH 1702. An exceptionally rare early Queen Anne Scottish Dognose Spoon made in Edinburgh in 1702 by John Seatoune, the Assay Master James Penman.


The Spoon is modelled in the dognose form, with a rat tail on the reverse of the bowl. The shaped end of the stem is much more pronounced than would be seen on a London spoon and is engraved with two sets of contemporary initials, engraved in typical Scottish script lettering. The gauge of the stem, where it meets the bowl, is extremely thick, one of the finest spoon stems we have seen on a dognose spoon. The spoon has a very good colour and is in quite excellent condition. Scottish spoons from this early period are extremely rare, this being the earliest dognose from Edinburgh we have offered.

Length: 8.1 inches.
