An Extremely Fine Pair of William III Britannia Standard Trefid Spoons Made in London in 1698 by Seth Lofthouse.
The Spoons are of the Britannia Standard, are modelled in the Trefid style and display a bead and reed rat tail on the back of the bowl. The top of the stem is engraved with a set of contemporary scratch engraved initials. The Spoons are in quite excellent condition, are very well marked and have a fine colour.
Seth Lofthouse was registered as a plateworker in 1697 and had workshops in Bishopsgate when these spoons were made.
