George III Brightcut Silver Caddy Spoon 1788

A very attractive George III silver caddy spoon.

The handle is decorated with brightcut engraving, a zig-zag border and finer shading inside -- with a contemporary monogram at the end. It has a plain oval bowl.

This is a rather pretty caddy spoon, and the engraving on the handle is particularly good. Brightcut engraving was very popular during this period, and it resulted in a bright and sparkling effect when polished. The hallmarks are stamped on the back of the handle. Caddy spoons were used to take a measure of tea from the tea caddy -- they came in all sorts of shapes and sizes.

This lovely George III silver caddy spoon was made in 1788 by William Sumner of London.
