The Caddy Spoons are unusually modelled as a pair of spades with T bar handle. The bowls are unusually engraved with a panel of chequered designs surrounded by prick dot bands. The spoons are in excellent condition and are very well marked. To find a pair of Caddy Spoons is extremely unusual, and they are usually modelled in a flatware pattern. To find a pair of this very scarce design, is most unusual. A silimiar form is shown on plate 48 of Caddy Spoons by Captain John Norie. Their difference in sizes, is possibly that one was for a man and one a woman to use in the caddy.



Length: 2.9 inches & 2.6 inches, respectively.
