the terminal crested with an arm in armour lying fesse and holding a dagger

Ref :
"Mustard spoons of the type shown here (elongated stems) first appear,
with Hanoverian stems, about 1750…..
The bowl of this spoon is very similar to that of the earliest egg spoons
(appearing from the late 18th century." (English Silver Spoons, Michael Snodin)
