A rare George III Tortoiseshell Pique Caddy Spoon made circa 1780.


The Caddy Spoon is of the early small scallop shell form and was made, most probably in London, circa 1780. The bowl is finely modelled as a scallop shell and the small handle is beautifully inlaid with a silver pique motif, designed to simulate a stylised flower head, with sunburst surround. The tortoiseshell is beautifully shaded and a very similar example is show in Caddy Spoons by John Norie, Plate 111, figure f.

Length: 2.1 inches, 5.25cm.
