The acorn knop was the most common of all spoon types. The acorn is a traditional symbol of immortality and was also regarded as a talisman and as a remedy against cholera and fluxes. It was undoubtedly these properties that made it so popular as a spoon type. This is the same as SP5p with the exception that like the original it has a brass knop.
