The Society of Caddy Spoon Collectors
was founded in 1963, by respected antique expert Eric Delieb. Eric wrote widely on the subject of antique silver. One of our first Founder Members was the legendary Arthur Negus, of early Antiques Road Show fame. Captain John Norie, who wrote the most comprehensive and authoritative book on the subject, The Caddy Spoon – an Illustrated Guide
was likewise a Founder Member and President of the Society. His books, like Eric Delieb’s, are now collectors’ items in their own right, and both wrote regularly for the Society Newsletter, which Eric edited for many years.
We hope this website goes some way to generating interest in our hobby. It will be regularly updated with Society news and the display of spoons changed to ensure continuing interest. If we are successful in attracting new members, we hope to be able to extend the site, and to include a ‘members only’ section. Please do continue to visit the site – Bookmark it, add it to your Favourites list and maybe even diary it for a regular check – you won’t be disappointed! And, whether you are an established collector or new to the field, we would very much like to hear from you – use the Contact Us link to email our Hon Sec - in complete privacy - for more details about membership.
