A rare George IV Heart Shovel Caddy Spoon made in Birmingham in 1822 by Joseph Taylor.
The Shovel Caddy Spoon has a very rare bowl which is decorated with unusual heart shaped motifs containing Rococo shell details, all surrounded by foliate scroll designs. The handle is modelled in the hour glass pattern and displays a full set of hallmarks. This is the first time we have seen this rare design and this example is in excellent condition.
Length: 3.3 inches, 8.25cm.
