When this spoon was sold from the collection of Sir Arthur Evans at Sotheby's on 30 May 1935 (lot 102), the previous lot was another 1507 London-made Apostle spoon (called St. James the Greater but later recognised by Commander and Mrs. How as St. Jude). Although not from the same set, both spoons had clearly been together since at least the 17th century because the backs of the bowls were similarly pricked with the same initials and the + and P emblem. This St. Jude spoon, bearing the maker's mark, a branch or tree, is now in the Assheton-Bennett Collection, City Art Gallery, Manchester. (See How, English and Scottish Silver Spoons, London, 1953, vol. II, p. 74, ch. III, section II, pl. 14)
