Measuring 5" long overall, this tea caddy spoon has a sterling silver, shell-shaped, bowl that is fully hallmarked for Birmingham, England, 1811, with a maker's stamp that appears to be "J.L" or "J.D".

It is fitted with a natural, likely bone, handle that has a rounded end and polished surface.

The bowl has a small, flat, hood that covers the heel, and a silver sleeve that accommodates the handle.

The piece is in excellent condition, showing no bends, tears, or other damage in the bowl. The handle is a yellow or tan color, probably darkened over time. It is free of splits or cracks, although there is one small nick on the side. The handle is fully secure, but removable, held in place by friction (there are no holes indicating it ever had a pin).
