Description

London 1733 English hallmarked solid silver early Georgian marrow scoop in very good condition, made shortly after George II was crowned.
English sterling silver is very accurate to date due to their renowned hallmarking system.
The scoop is double ended, with a wider scoop at one end originally used for extracting marrow from large bones, and a narrower one at the other, for smaller bones.
It is still a useful piece for scooping marrow out, such as for Osso Bucco, and also of great interest to the collector of small silver.
An elegant present now also used today to scoop condiments out of tall jars, as a novelty drink mixer/swizzle stick, or for serving thick sauces.
Size-8.5 inches long.
Weight- 50 grams.
A wonderful piece for the collector of interesting silver pieces, or of early 18th century silver.
A fine example, with deep and very clear hallmarks (only the makers mark is rubbed), and with great age at nearly 287 years old!
A fine piece of unusual 18th century silver.
