Scottish Silver Marrow Scoop, 1770
Marrow Scoop - Double-ended: Gilt bowl - Edinburgh 1770 by William Taylor - 22.3cm long; 43g - NL/9054
Antique Scottish marrow scoops are relatively rare compared to English hallmarked specimens and this double-ended Edinburgh marked spoon is a good example. Gilt to the inside of the larger scoop and bearing a fabulous crest to the underside, this marrow scoop packs a punch when it comes to quality. Combining the large scoop with a narrower version, this Georgian spoon is ideal for teasing out the tasty morsels from marrowfat bones and remains in excellent condition throughout.
