Description

English antique sterling silver caddy spoon by John Turner, hallmarked from Birmingham and dates c.1798.

This is a Silver Caddy Spoon, John Turner, Birmingham c.1798 with shell shaped bowl and bright cut decoration to handle.

In good order, the handle has what is best described as a small bruise caused by a finger and thumb holding it, it’s not damage, and to be honest this is very minimal and probably most would not usually be worth mentioning.  A very nice example.

Compared to other spoons, caddy spoons have shorter handles and shallower bowls. The spoon handle is shorter and, as a result, the spoon can be stored with the tea in a tea caddy.  The shallow bowl is to accurately measure out the right amount of tea leaves.
