Item description for Old Base Metal Spoons by G Hilton Price F...
Spoons made of pewter or the copper alloy latten may have been the humbler relatives of silverware in days gone by, but they can still be of great antique interest and value. In this guide, originally published in 1908, FG Hilton Price looks at many spoons mainly dating from the 14th to the 17th centuries. Describing and photographing examples from both his own and other collections he classifies their shapes, ornament and identifying stamps. The author was Director of the Society of Antiquaries in London and Old Base Metal Spoons is full of his keenness and expertise for the subject, making it a useful and informative read for anyone interested in the long history of this most familiar of domestic objects.
