Caddy Spoon - Hand - London 1806 by Josiah Snatt - 6.8cm long - MC/2378

The "Hand" caddy spoon is one of the holy trinity of silver caddy spoons for the collector - the other two being the jockey cap and eagle's wing - and this is a very handsome example  made by the main exponent of the type, Josiah Snatt (maker's mark part-stamped).

This is a right hand exampled with finely modelled fingers, engraved nails and an attractively engraved cuff handle. Due to their delicate nature, this type of novelty caddy spoon is prone to damage, but fortunately this example is in superb condition throughout. N.B. the scratch lettering around the hallmarks are likely codes of previous retailers.
