Catalogue Note

The initals are probably those of GEorgius Frater Von Husz  (1642-1699)
A tankard made by Paulus Nonnert  is in the Reformed Church, Kaschau. It can be connected to this spoon in that it was given by another member of the Frater famiy Istvan (1630-1703) who presented it to the church in 1662. Istvan was unoubtedly a close relation of Georgius, possibly his brother, having the same family name Frater De Ipp, Erkeseru et Belmezo. The family castle was called Husz.  Another spoon, which like the present one was probably a gift to a godchild and is similarly unmarked also has the Frater arms. This spoon which is in the Hungarian National Museum has also  been ascribed to the goldsmith Paul Nonnert
