"The Fisherman" Caddy Spoon, 1859
Caddy Spoon - "The Fisherman" - London 1859 by John Figg - 9.3cm; 31g - Ref: NP/9555
"The Fisherman" is one of the rarest of all silver caddy spoons and we believe this is the first to come to market in 15 years and is likely to be the one illustrated in "Caddy Spoons: An Illustrated Guide" by John Norie. It is possibly unique.
Made by the eminent silversmith, John Figg, this caddy spoon has its handle formed as a fisherman smoking a pipe. The generously sized, scallop-shaped bowl is gilt to the interior and the spoon just oozes quality. It is in excellent condition with clear hallmarks to the underside.
