A HANDSOME GEORGIAN STERLING SILVER STILTON SCOOP
AND
A FINE ADDITION TO ANY COLLECTION

SEE THE PICTURES AND DETAILS BELOW

This large Stilton Scoop is almost ten inches long (9.75 ins / 24.5 cms).
It weighs over three ounces overall (3.2 ounces / 88 grams).
While the handle is resin filled, the great bulk of the weight is the hallmarked Georgian sterling silver serving scoop.

The clear hallmarks shown above are struck on the underside of the scoop.

They are the duty mark the head of King George the Third, the lion passant guarantee mark for English sterling silver and the Roman capital letter “I” the date letter for 1804.

The maker’s mark is the script initials “TW” for the distinguished London silversmith Thomas Wallis II.

See Arthur G. Grimwade London Goldsmiths 1697 - 1837 Their Marks and Lives pages 212 number 2975 for this actual maker’s mark, and pages 692 and 693 for details of Thomas Wallis of 54 Red Lion Street, Clerkenwell, London, and his life and distinguished silversmithing career.

Additional hallmarks on both sides of the silver handle appear to date to a few years later, and include the maker’s mark “RP” possibly for Richard Poulden. It was normal for knife handles to be made by specialist handle makers, but this may be a sympathetic replacement.
