Nicely balanced GEORGE II sterling silver marrow scoop. 
Maker: John Langlands. Newcastle circa 1758. 

The reverse of the scoop is engraved with a contemporary family crest over an eloborate initial G. The base of the stem is stamped with the marker's mark, the Newcastle Town mark and the Lion Passant. 
The proportions are particularly elegant and the silver has a silky sheen. 

These scoops were often used during the rule of Queen Anne when 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. 

Apart from their original use of extracting the marrow from bones, marrow scoops today make extremely good tools for scooping sauces, such a chutney etc., from deep receptacles and as a cocktail mixer.
