Silver Marrow Scoops

Marrow scoops, otherwise known as marrow spoons, are narrow spoons with a long, thin bowl at the end, used to remove marrow from a marrowbone. The need for them arose out of dining etiquette, where it was seen as uncouth to eat from the bone itself, and so a special instrument to remove the savoury jelly from the bone was introduced in the late seventeenth century. Here at Steppes Hill Farm Antiques we have a variety of antique silver marrow scoops in our collection, made from both English and Irish silver in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. We are glad to advise on any of our items for sale before purchasing and collecting.
