A superb Victorian silver marrow scoop, very rare as the scoop is double ended. The hallmarks are very interesting: on the reverse of the scoop are the clear marks for the Newcastle Assay office with a date mark for 1837, also the the William IV Head Duty Mark. The Lion Passant indicating finest sterling silver is very clear, along with noticeable silver maker's mark for John Walton.
A rather special item, particularly having 2 scoops and also bearing the wonderful Duty Mark, great for a collector and in super condition.
