This lovely Silver gilt commemorative spoon is a faithful copy of the Anointing Spoon used at the Coronation of King Edward VII in 1902 at Westminster Abbey. It bears hallmarks for London 1902 and makers initials CS FS which is Cornelius Desmonceaux Saunders and James Francis Hollings Shepherd. In its original red morocco leather box with velvet and satin lining plus retailers inscription: C Parker & Co Goldsmiths and Jewellers 70-78 Regent Street, London. There is a letter of provenance provided J.C and J. Field: Candle and soap makers, of 15 upper Marsh, Lambeth, London. Founded by Thomas Field of Lambeth before 1642. 1768 John Field was listed as a wax chandler of Lambeth. 1800 the Field family business was known as John and Charles Field, candle makers from Lambeth Marshes. 1820 With the addition of another John, from the next generation of the family, the company became known as J.C and J.

Late 1850ís Moved to Bermondsey New Road 1873 Ozokerit candles for tropical climates. The Ozokerit refining process was apparently the cornerstone of the candle business. 1876 Trademarks were registered for the Company, now known as candles manufacturers, by Arthur Field and his business partners Frederick Field and John Kingsford Field 1887 The Company was registered as J.C and J.
