This exceptional antique George VI sterling silver and agate presentation trowel has a triangle, angular shaped blade in the Art Deco style.

The anterior face of the blade features an extended angular border embellished with bands of tooled decoration.

The ornamentation to the blade incorporates the contemporary engraved presentation inscription:

‘Presented to The Right Honorable The Lord Mayor of Newcastle upon Tyne, Alderman Gilbert Oliver, J.P. upon Laying the Foundation Stone for the New Artillery Barracks, 7th July 1938’.

The reverse of the blade is plain and unembellished, apart from the featured hallmarks.

This sterling silver trowel retains the original fine and impressive carved hexagonal agate handle and embellished with a chased decorated stylised leaf decorated bolster in addition to a plain hallmarked hexagonal terminal.

This impressive antique trowel is fitted to the original hinged leatherette presentation box with satin and velvet lined interior, securing with a push fit catch.

The interior of the box bears the retailer’s mark of ‘By Appointment, Mappinn & Webb Ltd, Regent Street, London W’.
