Marrow Scoop - Double-ended - London 1728 by Joseph Smith - 20.9cm long; 52g - HP/4740

This is a fine quality Georgian silver double-ended marrow scoop made by the important maker Joseph Smith.

Made during the year that George II ascended to the throne, this silver marrow scoop takes the standard form with one wide and one narrow scoop either side of a central shank - all the better for removing the tasty morsels from marrow bones. The central shank is engraved with original "I*S" ownership initials and a full set of cleanly punched London hallmarks. This silver marrow scoop remains in excellent condition.

Joseph Smith was a specialist silver spoonmaker who was apprenticed to Benjamin Watt in 1700 and went on to be the master of Ebenezer Coker who became one of best spoonmakers of the mid-18th century.
