An extremely rare pair of William IV Caddy Spoons made by William Parkins of Glasgow and assayed in Edinburgh in 1832.

The Caddy Spoons have an oval bowl pierced with star motifs surrounded by a prick dot surround. The Old English Pattern handle is also decorated with prick dot bands and a heart shaped cartouche containing a script initial. The Spoons certainly have a naive feel to the design. Single caddy spoons from Scotland are scarce, however to find a pair from any location is especially rare. We offered these spoons some years ago, however this is the only pair we have ever seen from Scotland.

Length: 3 inches, 7.5cm.
Width of bowl: 1.9 inches, 4.75cm.
