The bowl of the Caddy Spoon is formed as a beautifully shaded natural Cowrie Shell. The shell bowl has a plain silver rim and the bifurated handle displays a double thread edge. This example is in excellent condition and is marked with the maker's mark of ML conjoined for Matthew Linwood of Birmingham. These silver mounted natural shell Caddy Spoons are extremely rare. Very few were made in the first place, however even fewer survived. Various shell caddy spoons are shown on Plate 105, of "Caddy Spoons" by Captain John Norie.
