An excellent quality antique sterling silver trowel with a presentation inscription from the Heeley Methodist School to one side. The carved bakalite handle is particularly attractive. Would make an ideal cake slice. Length 30.5 cms. Width 10 cms. Sheffield 1871. Maker Martin Hall & Co.

This lovely silver slice is in very good condition with no restoration. The silver marks are clear and easy to read. The engraving is crisp. There is a very slight crease on the back of the silver which does not show on the top.

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”.
