Charming GEORGE III small sterling silver marrow scoop.
Maker: John Lambe. London circa 1780.

A scoop this size with maker's mark only would probably have come out of a travelling etui.

These scoops were often used during the rule of Queen Anne, marrow was then deemed to be quite a luxury and only the rich could afford meat on a regular basis.
The narrow channel of the scoop allowed for the marrow to be removed from the bone and silver was used for reasons of hygiene.
Length: 4.7 inches (11.9cm)
Weight: 0.39 troy ounces (12.13 grams)
Condition: Very good with light wear due to age.
