Thomas Parsons Caddy Spoon, Birmingham 1795
Caddy Spoon - Birmingham 1795 by Thomas Parson - 6.1cm long - BJ/1134
This pretty silver caddy spoon was the creation of the rarely encountered Birmingham silversmith Thomas Parsons (TP) and dates from the late 18th century. The date letter for 1795 is very similar to that of 1821, however the vertical orientation of these stamps and the style of the duty mark clinch the dating. The dainty form of the spoon is typical of the period too.
This Georgian caddy spoon is attractively engraved to the handle with the bonus of no personalised engravings and has a plain oval bowl. It is in fine condition with a good set of hallmarks.
