A rare George III 'Tiny' Caddy Spoon made in Birmingham in 1812 by Lawrence & Company.


The Caddy spoon is of an unusual small size with circular bowl engraved with an oval containing a flower head and foliate motifs. The Old English Pattern handle is engraved with zig zag designs and a tear top cartouche engraved with a set of contemporary script initials. The bowl also displays a raying shell moulding where it is attached to the handle. The spoon is in excellent condition and is very well marked on the reverse of the handle. These tiny Caddy spoons are rare and are dealt with by Captain Norie, in his book Caddy Spoons on plate 101, The Smallest Caddy Spoons. A near identical example, by the same makers, is shown on plate 101, figure f.

Length: 2.25 inches, 5.63cm.

Diameter of the bowl: 1.2 inches, 3cm.
