I have posted a picture of three parts, that I have found today.
One is a buckle, which I think is probably 17th Century?
The second is about 40mm long made from copper alloy, with a short blade like piece at the end?
The third is a very delicate looking piece that appears to be gilded and has a hole at one end?
These both appear familiar, but I am not sure what they are or the age.
Any help with identification will be greatly appreciated

Thanks guys - looks like most things in this field are 1500-1700.
Any idea what seal top spoons were used for?

Just a guess but perhaps to dish out sugar or salt or some other expensive (at the time) spice or condiment.
