The hoard lay close to a royalist garrison at Stowey Court and may have been owned by its occupants or, perhaps more likely, a prosperous local yeoman. The objects were all made in London, including three spoons by the specialist spoon maker John Feake. Feake served his apprenticeship with Somerset-born silversmith Daniel Cary. The bell salt is a particularly rare survival and interesting as it was made by two different makers at different times.
Found by a metal detectorist in Nether Stowey and declared Treasure in 2008.
