During the eighteenth century drinking tea was an important social custom in England and America. The practice of serving it required both distinctive manners and specific equipment. Because tea was a valued commodity, the leaves were stored in a locked tea caddy to prevent theft. Tea caddy spoons were often purchased separately to scoop the loose leaves from the caddy to the teapot.

Description is misleading, it is not 3 1/2" but in reality it is 2 3/4. This is but a miniature. Way too tiny to use and looks ridiculous to display. Disappointed!
Excellent quality. Beautiful item.
