Description

Birmingham 1938 English hallmarked solid silver large presentation trowel, contained in the original fitted case. With large, beautifully carved ivory handle, and Welsh related engraving, this is a lovely example.
Made by Barker Brothers, very good makers.
The waisted carved ivory handle is very tactile, and the trowel has unusually detailed and attractive engraving.
Size-13.25 inches long by 3.5 inches wide.
Originally used in the building trade to present at a topping out ceremony when the building was finished, it is also used today to serve cakes, pies and other desserts in addition to its original use.
A wonderful very hard to find piece with both trowel and case in very good condition.
Many other solid silver trowels with historical engravings, some including cases, are also in stock, but not listed. Please enquire for details and photos of others available.
