Antique English sterling silver tea caddy spoon, hallmarked from London in 1815, the makers mark of JS.
Silver Caddy Spoon, JS London 1815, will most probably be either Josiah Snatt or John Shea.
In very good order with just 2 minute pinhead sized dinks to the bowl (very very minimal).
Initialed to terminal.
Measures 88mm in length.
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.
