Georgian Silver Filigree Jockey Cap Caddy Spoon c.1800
Delicate and rare filigree silver caddy spoon in the shape of a jockey’s cap. The cap is a woven basket weave effect with central disc, unengraved. The peak has a beautiful scroll and leaf filigree design. Unmarked as is usual, made in Birmingham, c.1800. Please see plate 96 in “Caddy Spoons – An Illustrated Guide” by John Norrie for a similar example.
It measures 5cm (2") by 4.2cm (1 5/8") wide and weighs 10g / 0.3ozt.
Condition is very good. Some minor splits to a few of the wires where the peak meets the cap as is often the case. No losses or repairs. Slight distortion to the base of the cap.
18th Century, Georgian (1714 to 1837)
