This extremely rare Caddy Spoon is of a most unusual design with a very deep bowl, scalloped rim, and domed handle, with tiny scroll shoulders below - referred to as the "Thumb Scoop" Caddy Spoon. Most unusually the interior side of the rim of the bowl is engraved with various bands of prick dot designs. The handle also has a scalloped edge and is engraved with a prick dot and herring bone border. The Spoon is in excellent condition and is very well marked.

A stylised thumb scoop is currently offered for sale on our site, however to find the true design is extremely unusual. This is only the third we have seen over all of the years. A similar example is shown in " Caddy Spoons " by Captain John Norie, Plate 42, Fig b.
