King George V tea caddy spoon
Boy do I love tea caddy spoons!!! If you are looking for an affordable collection to start, these are so cool! Tea was once extremely expensive & kept in locked tea caddies (boxes) with a little scoop or spoon locked inside. They have been a popular souvenir in England for 200 years.
This little cutie was made to commemorate the Silver Jubilee of the coronation of King George V and Queen Mary of England in 1935 and measures 3 inches long. The tea caddy spoon has an applied enamel dedication disc and crown. Cute!!

We went to our farmer's market today and came home with nectarines, tomatoes, sweet onions and fresh picked spinach. Can't get better than that. Hope you have a great day and look for something new to learn about.
