Tea Leaf Caddy Spoon, 1805 by Willmore
Caddy Spoon - Leaf - Birmingham 1805 by Joseph Willmore - 6.5cm long; 8.1g - BJ/8673
This is a fine Joseph Willmore interpretation of one of the most popular forms of early 19th century silver tea caddy spoons - the leaf.
The bowl of this Georgian spoon is modelled as a tea leaf complete with serrated edge, dendritic veins and looped tendril handle. All-in-all this is a very charming spoon with the bonus of being in excellent condition with neither damage nor repair and clear hallmarks located within the bowl.
