The sealtop was by far the most prolific of the cast spoon terminals and was given the name because the round flat top was sometimes engraved with the owner's initials.In this example there is the crest mentioned above.As with much early silver the form was inspired by nature , in this case the bowl of the spoon being made in the form of a fig.
