An unusual antique sterling silver trowel with a presentation inscription to LS Amery MP from the Unionist Club Ward End Birmingham on the front side. The blade edge has a pierced lacework border and the handle is mounted with a figural rams head. Would make an ideal cake slice. Length 31 cms. Width 10.5 cms. Birmingham 1923. Maker Vaughton & Sons.
This lovely silver slice is in very good condition with no damage or restoration. The silver marks are clear and easy to read. The engraving is crisp. The rams head is unmarked.

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”.
