A rare George III Hand Caddy Spoon made in Birmingham in 1806 by Joseph Taylor.


The Caddy Spoon is finely modelled as a hand and the handle is beautifully shaped and is engraved with prick dot and Greek key borders and a stylised central floral motif. The reverse of the fingers are engraved with prick dot bands to simulate the nails on the fingers. The reverse of the handle is also very well marked. The hand is one of the rarest of the Caddy Spoon designs and an identical example, of the same date, is shown in Caddy Spoons by Captain John Norie, Plate 94, figure d.
