Charming GEORGE III small sterling silver marrow scoop. 
Maker: John Lambe. London circa 1780. 

A scoop this size with maker's mark only would probably have come out of a travelling etui. 

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