Pair Victorian Cast Silver Scallop Shell Caddy Spoons
A very fine quality pair of caddy spoons with scallop shell bowls, twisted handles and whelk-shell terminals, by John S Hunt. For a collector of caddy spoons, spoons, or fine silver there can be no greater name nor finer quality.
On the death of Paul Storr in 1838, his business (Storr & Mortimer) was continued by his nephew John Samuel Hunt under the name of Mortimer & Hunt. In 1843 the company became Hunt & Roskell until 1897.
Paul Storr entered into business with Rundell, Bridge & Rundell in 1807 who were the Royal Goldsmiths at the time. John Hunt followed in Storrs footsteps and the company Hunt & Roskell was listed in 1843 as Silversmith and Jewellers to Queen Victoria.
