Charles II Silver Child's Trefid Spoon, Steven Venables Junior, London, 1684, maker's mark

 

Steven Venables Junior was apprenticed in 1664 to his uncle, the earlier well-known
spoonmaker Steven Venables. Their work overlaps and their marks are similar.
However, Steven I died in 1783, and Steven Junior carried on his trade.
The smaller Venables mark is generally attributed to Steven Junior.
Steven Venables Junior was also listed as a spoonmaker for The Copper Plate.
Timothy Kent in "London Silver Spoonmakers, 1500-1697"
states his listing of specialists, which included Steven Venables Junior,
that any would qualify for the "top twenty" spoonmakers,
and some for the "top 15".

right hand tip wear to the bowl; superficial pitting to the bowl verso;
expected nicks and scratches appropriate to age and usage
