    1700 William III Pewter Spoon & pieces from 3 others!

    Thought this find deserved a post of it's own.
    have found many pieces of old pewter flatware at Cob Cove,
    was always intrigued by the similarity of some of the pieces,
    Well, when I found a mostly intact spoon with a Bust and script I was hoping I'd be able to get some info about them.
    It is a King William III Pewter Spoon, made in Boston Ma, CA 1700.
    Have handles and bowls from 3 others previously dug from the vicinity.
    Note bust images on all 4 handles
    Very interesting link below about these spoons history and someone purchasing an original mold and making new spoons! (I contacted him, his do not have the 'A1'
    on the back of the handle)
    Why did I spend all this time digging these when I could purchase a shiny new one for $20

    This must've been one amazing spoon when it was made 300+ years ago!
    I bet the person who lost it cried when they found it was missing!

    Re: 1700 William III Pewter Spoon

    Hi Dave,
    What I think happened is that the waterfront inn that was operating there at the time used these spoons, and as they broke, they were discarded out the window.
    There is still a building on the original foundation that comes out over the water on pilings.
    congrats on your first Silver

    I just added that spoon to my wish list Herbie. We find a few pewter buttons in CS camps and some melted pieces where soldiers threw pewter items into campfires. You just never know what to expect when you go hunting there Herbie. HH, Quindy.

    Re: 1700 William III Pewter Spoon

    Herbie,
    No doubt a early spoon & frags with the rat tail on the back of the bowl.Looks like you've done your home work on it though so I won't have to go dig Info out. I've found quite a few old pewter spoon parts & to have one with that much design still left or any design at all is a Fantastic find!But hey what can I say I'm a spoon man myself. I was going to pass you the torch with the video Iron Patch left in my post but it no longer plays.
    Take Care Herbie & Keep with your ways.

    Thanks for all your replies!
    I'm seeing the bust on the 3 other handle fragments also.
    looks like one may have a slightly different 'Dognose' but I think all of these are William IIIs.
    Best digs to Everyone

    Super finds, the whole one to go along with the pieces of others will make one fine display! Never saw spoons like that and you found a nice hunk of history, congrats.

    Those are some great early colonial artifacts!

    I just love early pewter cutlery, and yours are some great examples. I'd love to find some with the markings that yours have. Below are some pics of a few pieces of early cutlery I've been fortunate to dig around southeast VA, and nearly all of them came from my favorite creekfront site. Not sure how early these date to, but I'm guessing early-to-mid 1700s. The site goes back to the mid-1600s. Thanks for posting your great looking spoons.

    I’ve mentioned before that my new book can be a great holiday gift idea for a family member or friend, and I’ve noticed recently that many are purchasing a copy for that very purpose. However, time is running short, so anyone interested in taking advantage of this opportunity should do so in the next week to ensure delivery prior to Christmas.

This book, entitled “DISCOVERING VIRGINIA’S COLONIAL ARTIFACTS — AComprehensive Guide to Recovery, Identification and Preservation”, is 400 pagesin length and packed with nearly 1000 color photos of 16th thru 18th centuryartifacts I’ve personally recovered over the last 20+ years along with manyquality post-colonial finds that randomly turn up at early sites. I alsobelieve it’s the first of its kind in this subject matter area to hit themarket. But don’t be misled by the title as this is a must-have not only forcolonial enthusiasts, but for all novice and veteran relic hunters as well as itcovers a wide range of pertinent topics including research methods, how tosecure permission, reading and searching sites, finding and excavating trashpits, artifact cleaning, preservation, documentation and display, ethics, andmuch more.
