We are an association of individuals interested in the caddy spoon as an area of collecting.  

The Society was founded in 1965, in England, and now has an international membership.

In accordance with our Founders’ statement, we aim to promote the study and collection of caddy spoons of all types.


The Eagle’s Wing Emblem




Eagle’s Wing, Joseph Willmore,
Birmingham 1824

 
The Emblem of the Society is a representation of one of the most famous Caddy Spoons – the highly collectable ‘Eagle’s Wing’, made by Joseph Wilmore in 1814.  (Later versions, notably by Matthew Linwood a few years later, are also to be found, and are of similar value to collectors.)  The ‘wing’ is the bowl, formed of highly detailed, individually modelled overlapping feathers; the head of the eagle, also beautifully modelled, forms the handle.  The two pieces were struck separately in these early pieces, and then the handle skilfully soldered to the bowl, with a virtually undetectable join.

Modern, usually cast, versions of this spoon occasionally come up for sale, and fetch relatively high prices.  New collectors, realising the likelihood of finding an early example to be slim, settle for the modern spoon, hoping to replace them later in their collecting career.
