A Georgian Silver Marrow Scoop- Early ExampleSOLD

This Georgian silver marrow scoop was made in London 1729 by John Swift. It is a very early example, most silver Marrow Scoops were made in the mid to late 18th century. This one though, is George II, and in lovely condition.

The hallmarks on this Georgian silver marrow scoop are well struck, but like so much flatware of this period, slightly pinched as the stems were re-worked after assaying- the punches knocked it slightly out of shape and so corrections had to be made before sale. This is, however, quite normal.

A fine and early example of a Georgian silver marrow scoop.

Type: Marrow Scoop
