Description

Before the late 1550s, seal top spoons are a relative rarity. After that, though, they became very popular until about 1670. This Elizabeth I Seal Top Spoon is modeled after one that might have been used by the Queen of England, Elizabeth I herself. Between 1560 and 1670, it became something of a custom to carry personal eating utensils while traveling, as well as personal writing materials. A seal spoon is a combination of the two concepts, merging an eating utensil with a functional writing tool. The spoon features a wide bowl and a narrow stem that ends in a decorative press-seal. This seal is used for sealing letters with hot wax, where the wax is poured over a letter to create a seal, and the end of the spoon is pressed into the wax to create a personal seal. This spoons end features the seal of Queen Elizabeth I, and takes the shape of a full Tudor rose. The spoon is made with a brass bowl and a pewter top. This Elizabeth I Seal Top Spoon supplied in a box with a clear lid, as well as an insert featuring interesting and explanative historical information.
