This exceptional antique Victorian ivory handled, sterling silver trowel has a triangular, rounded shaped blade.

The anterior face of the blade is embellished with impressive bright cut engraved stemmed leaf and floral designs on a matte background to the lower portion.

‘Presented to Miss Emma Luen Flemming by Frederic Francis Ramuz at the laying of the Foundation Stone of Leigh-on-sea Public Hall, 9th April 1896’

The reverse of the blade is plain and unembellished.
