A rare and very collectible item by this sought after English lady silversmith. This George III sterling silver spoon is double ended, with a regular spoon end and a narrow scoop end for scooping marrow out of bones. Weight 59 grams, 1.8 troy ounces. Length 23 cms. London 1782. Maker Hester Bateman.
This special spoon is in good condition with no damage or restoration. The bowl of the spoon is not worn and still retains its original shape. With a full and clear set of English silver hallmarks. There is a very minor dink inside the bowl.

Please note that this item is not new and will show moderate signs of wear commensurate with age. Reflections in the photograph may detract from the true representation of this item.
The marrow scoop, used for scooping marrow from a bone, was made in great quantities during the 18th century. Probably only one or two were provided with a service for a dozen people and therefore were used communally. The earlier examples have fatter and shorter bowls.
