Charles II Lace Back Trefid Spoon made in London in 1682 by Lawrence Coles

$4,866.69

About

This extremely fine and rare Charles II Lace back trefid spoon was made in London in 1682 by the prolific, quality, spoon maker, Lawrence Coles. As you will see from the images, the spoon is modelled in the Trefid style and the back of the bowl displays finely detailed scroll lace work entwined with beaded bands, around a raised reeded rat tail. The back of the stem displays a good set of hallmarks. The front of the stem also displays very beautiful raised lacework including scroll work and beading, slightly different to the designs usually seen. The top of the stem is also engraved with a set of marriage initials amongst the lacework. The spoon is in quite excellent condition, has a good colour, a fine gauge stem and good bowl. Lawrence Coles was apprentice to John Smith and there is no doubt, from his freedom in 1667 onwards, that he was a major trade supplier, with workshops in Foster Lane. Measures: Length: 7.5 inches, 18.75 cm. Width of bowl: 1.5 inches, 3.75 cm.
