This long slender spoon is cast and displays a finely detailed gilded leaf bowl with raised vein work on both sides. The twisted loop stem has two further leaves applied. This spoon is fully marked on the reverse of the bowl and is in excellent condition. There is much debate as to the use of these spoons, however it is widely thought that they were used as a tea caddy spoon or for serving sugar.

Length: 5.1 inches, 12.75cm
