The finest of the acorns were made by Elizabeth Morley, however examples are rare. The large bowl is beautifully modelled and engraved with trellis work to simulate the shape of the acorn. The handle has a shaped edge and is engraved with palm work and a set of contemporary script initials. Acorns, together with the "hand" and eagle's wing are one of the rarest designs in Caddy Spoons. A similar example, by Elizabeth Morley, is shown on Plate 97 of "Caddy Spoons", by Captain John Norie.

Length: 3.1 inches, 7.75cm.
