A good early 20th Century Arts and Crafts Cast Silver Caddy Spoon. With hammered heart shaped bowl. The pierced handle with leaf and raised foliate decoration.

By A E Jones, Birmingham, 1915.

With the very first examples originating from the 1770s, caddy spoons were used to measure out the correct amount of dried tea leaves. An expensive luxury commodity at the time. They are named caddy spoons after tea caddies, the storage containers for the tea that the spoons were often kept with. Antique silver caddy spoons are extremely popular among collectors today. Steppes Hill Farm Antiques has a vast collection of caddy spoons in many designs, made in the eighteenth, nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
