This is a wonderful antique figural brass tea caddy spoon or scoop. It has three figures wearing hats and floor length clothing. It is all brass and has a Registry Number that appears to be 139235 engraved into the back. It is very difficult to read even under magnification. We believe it dates to around the late 1800's.
It measures approximately 3" by 1 ¾".
The condition is good except there are some light surface scratches on the bowl of the spoon. It has been washed but not polished. It retains much of its old patina. There is oxidation and perhaps remnants of old polish in the detailing on the figurines.
