A cache of brass objects included two complete, heavy brass candlesticks, a set of nested cooking pots, a colander, and a ladle. The candlesticks, a baluster type popular in the 16th-17th centuries, the candlesticks were likely made in France. A hole near the base of each was a socket for removing candle stubs. The serving ladle measures 7.8 cm long, and was one of two ladles found on the ship. Other eating utensils included knives, forks, and spoons made of brass, pewter, wood, and iron.
