Object Description

A good antique sterling silver marrow scoop used for scooping marrow out of bones. Double ended. One end has a hand engraved monogram of interlaced initials in old English script. Weight 49 grams, 1.5 troy ounces. Length 20.75 cms. London 1795. Maker Smith & Fearn.

Object Literature

The marrow scoop, used for scooping marrow from a bone, was made in great quantities during the 18th century. Probably only one or two were provided with a service for a dozen people and therefore were used communally. The earlier examples have fatter and shorter bowls.

Object Condition

This collectible silver marrow scoop is in very good condition with no damage or restoration. Stamped on the reverse with full set of clear English silver hallmarks. The monogram is still crisp.

Please note that this item is not new and will show moderate signs of wear commensurate with age. Reflections in the photograph may detract from the true representation of this item.
