This very rare Caddy Spoon is die stamped and modelled in the very rare Scallop Shell form. The spoon is hand chased and is of a large size and displays a reeded handle, decorated with a single shell and acanthus foliage. This piece is very well marked and is also engraved with a contemporary Crest on the handle. To find a true scallop shell is extremely rare, however to find an Irish example is most unusual. An identical example is illustrated in "Caddy Spoons" by Captain John Norie, Plate 98, fig b. It is also shown in "Investing in Silver" by Eric Delieb, page 33. Irish Caddy Spoons are particularly rare.

Width: 2.25 inches, 6.63cm.
Length: 2.6 inches, 6.5cm.
