A silver and gilt caddy spoon in the form of a chrysanthemum. It is marked SM whose mark typically appears on Liberty & Co’s silver in the 1893-1899 period. Liberty & Co retailed caddy spoons by SM very similar to this one. It is in great condition and a good gauge of silver. Due to Liberty's trading relationship with Japan this was previously thought to be Japanese silver but the S.M mark has been documented by Adrien von Ferscht, an expert on Chinese Export Silver, as originating from a little known Canton maker.
