1853 marked beautifully shaped and heavy Victorian silverplate stilton scoop by very famous maker ELKINGTON.
1853 dated wonderful quality heavy stilton scoop by famous maker Elkington and Company, in the double struck fiddle thread and shell pattern. It is made in a heavy gauge, and is well balanced in the hand.
Stilton scoops were developed to deal with scooping a serving of cheese from a full or half wheel of Stilton cheese. The implement had to be efficient and unable to be easily bent. These were very popular from the mid 1700's to the end of the Edwardian era, and are much desired and prised today.
Elkington, credited with inventing the silver plating process, marks all their silver plate with date codes, hence the accurate dating for this piece. It is has a very unusual shaped curved and pointed scoop, sharp shoulders, and a shell to both the stem and the heel of the bowl on the reverse side. In addition, the stem bears a delightful family crest of a rampant lion holding a crescent moon.
Size-8 inches long by 1.25 inches wide.
Weight-85 grams.
This is a fine quality and very functional Stilton scoop in very good condition, very suitable for giving as a gift with a crock of Stilton cheese and perhaps a beverage of the recipient's choice!
