This is a lovely little sterling tea caddy spoon. It is fully hallmarked, and the marks declare it to be British Sterling, minted in Birmingham, in the Year 1809. The maker's mark is there, but worn. More importantly, the sovereign's head is present. The spoon is in excellent condition for its age. It does have a slight bend at the end of the handle, but I think that is intentionally curved to make it easier to hold with the tip of one's fingers while measuring tea. The spoon weighs 5.30 grams the best I could figure, but with the curve of the bowl, there's no way I could get all of the silver on the scale. The spoon measures 2 and 3/4 inches long, and the bowl is an inch and 1/8 wide. What a piece of history! Note: The photo makes the silver in the bowl of the spoon appear discolored. It is not; it's just the glare of the sun, and the silver acting as a mirror.
