Spoons such as this, with long slender stems and round bowls seem to be a peculiarity of the 14th century. The acorn knop is a traditional symbol of immortality and was also regarded as a talisman and remedy against cholera and fluxes. As a knop it is quite common although being made of brass instead of a pewter is a more unusual feature.
