A small antique sterling silver spade engraved to the front with a horticultural inscription to RW Allen, the High Sheriff of Bedfordshire, on the opening of the allotments at Queens Engineering Works. Weight 268 grams, 8.6 troy ounces. Length 31 cms. Sheffield 1921. Maker Martin Hall & Co.
This miniature silver shovel is in good condition with no damage or restoration. The engraving is crisp. The silver marks are good. The bottom edge of the spade is a bit uneven. Needs a good polish.

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.
A presentation trowel was traditionally given to commemorate laying the foundation stone of a building. It should bear an inscription with the name of the dignitary laying the stone, the building and the date of commencement (or completion) of the project. Special examples can sometimes have an engraved representation of the building. On rare occasions a life size presentation shovel was given to commemorate “the turning of the first sod”.
