Chocolate Spoon

English, c.1700

Pewter or Latten. Drinking chocolate was fashionable in this period. The hot chocolate needed frequent stirring in the cup to prevent it from coagulating. Small spoons like this were made for that purpose -- they are often miscalled children's spoons, but they were in fact for adults. Good excavated condition, minor loss to finial.

3-3/4" l.
