Spoon, Pewter, Acorn-knop (pewter)

The acorn knop was the most common of all spoon types. The acorn is a traditional symbol of immortality and was also regarded as a talisman and as a remedy against cholera and fluxes. It was undoubtedly these properties that made it so popular as a spoon type.

The original had a brass knop (see SL-LRSP5b), but this simpler version has been cast with a pewter knop.

14th- 15th cent.
