The Caddy spoon is modelled in the very rare "Thumb Scoop" design with very deep bowl, scalloped rim, and domed handle, with tiny shoulders below. Very few spoons of this design were made, however they are nearly always made by Joseph Taylor. The handle has a rounded edge and is engraved with a prick dot border, foliate motif and set of script initials. The spoon is very well marked and is in excellent condition. A similar example is shown in "Caddy Spoons" by Captain Norie, Plate 42, fig b.

Length: 2.45 inches.6.13cm.
