marrow scoop

Marrow scoop of typical 8 " length but unusually narrow and a very light 34g. Pictured against a typical and genuine example of the period. What would traditionally have been the lamb bowl is less than " wide and I suspect that any bone this would fit could be broken open with relative ease without the need for a special tool such as this. The silversmithing is generally crude, the finish uneven, shoulders poorly defined and the thread and shell decoration noticeably weak and uncertain. A genuine set of Solomon Hougham, London 1805 hallmarks have been transposed, most likely, from a teaspoon. To one edge spurious scratch engraved lines around this section in attempt to confuse the very obvious lines of the transposition.

Back now scrapped
