A George III silver tea caddy spoon

A George III silver tea caddy spoon with plain bowl and bright cut handle, hallmarked in London in 1794, with makers mark IP. The mark is probably for James Phipps I or John Priestman who were both known to be making spoons in London in 1774 and who’s marks are indistinguishable. Caddy spoons were used in the 18th and 19th century to measure out dried tea which was kept in elaborate boxes known as tea caddies. Tea was such an expensive commodity at this time that it was kept under lock and key and sparingly measured out using these pretty little caddy spoons.
