Welcome to the forum Pablo.

This is not a caddy spoon - it's for salt or mustard, so a condiment spoon. The hallmarks are Birmingham 1827 and I think that the maker's mark is probably IT (?) which would mean that the maker was Joseph Taylor.

Thank you so much for the prompt reply.
Is it normal for there to be two of them?
I agree that the mark is IT

If you had a condiments set of a salt and a mustard you would need 2 spoons, one for each.
