This very rare Caddy Spoon is referred to as the "Pastern Hoof" because of its resemblance is shape to the pastern of a horse which is between the fetlock and the hoof. The bowl of the spoon has a raised pierced gallery and is engraved with very unusual prick dot designs. The handle is also decorated with foliate designs and an oval cartouche containing a script initial. The Spoon is in excellent condition and is very well marked on the reverse. A similar example is shown on plate 50, fig a, of "Caddy Spoons", by Captain John Norie.

Length: 2.75 inches, 6.88cm
