Immaculate pair of Scottish sterling silver tea caddy spoons with pierced work Scottish thistle terminals.
Both are hallmarked from Edinburgh in 1991 and come with original case which is also in immaculate order.,It is very evident that these have never been used and most probably only taken out of the box by us to photograph them.
The first spoon has the following written to the bowl ‘ When you have tea think of plantations ,ships,tea-auctions and ships, but most of all when you have tea think of me’ The second one has ‘A Scots measure’ The humerous part is that this one has a hole in centre allowing much of the tea to fall through so less tea would be used.. We have all heard of the romours about the Scots being tight , this is a play on this and sure to amuse any Scot with a sense of humour, I know we found it amusing but no doubt with the way things are these days someone will find it offensive, So bear in mind we DID NOT make the spoon!!.
Each measures 116mm in length.
