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.

Cup Salt 

English, 1700-25

Attractive small salt of cup form, not the more common pedestal form (see Markham, fig 66, p.90). Wriggle-work decoration. No touchmarks. Unpolished, with a slight glow (close-up of wriggle-work brightened). If you eat M&Ms, here's where to keep them, if you don't….

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.

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.

Cockle Plate 

England, late 18th c.

Small plates like this were used to serve cockles (small shellfish) in the pubs along the Thames. You can use this one for whatever -- if you're Irish you might like to follow Molly Malone and use it for "cockles and mussels" together. Dark, unpolished finish.Rose and Crown and London touchmarks on base.
