A rare early 20th century Arts & Crafts style silver Caddy Spoon, the large sideways oval bowl with hammered finish, the cast handle with chased decoration depicting a scene from Aesop's Fable of the Fox and the Grapes.

By A E Jones, Birmingham, 1915

"Driven by hunger, a fox tried to reach some grapes hanging high on the vine but was unable to, although he leaped with all his strength. As he went away, the fox remarked, 'Oh, you aren't even ripe yet! I don't need any sour grapes".
