The most desired of the Caddy Spoons!
Caddy spoons, originally used for scooping tea out of Tea Caddies, are a popular collecting area in silver. (For an earlier post about caddy spoons, click here - Caddy Spoons). Among the rarest and most collectable of the caddy spoons is a stunning one called the Eagle's Wing Caddy Spoon. The spoon was first made in Birmingham by Joseph Willmore and Matthew Linwood around 1815-40. It was produced again by George Unite around 1865. It has also been reproduced a number of times since then in the twentieth century.

This was sold by Bonhams in 2005 for £2,400!
What do you think? Is it worth all the fuss?
