Description


This exceptional antique Victorian ivory handled, sterling silver trowel has a triangular, rounded shaped blade.


The anterior face of the blade is embellished with impressive bright cut engraved stemmed leaf and floral designs on a matte background to the lower portion.


The upper portion is embellished with a paralleling simplified floral motif decorated border and incorporates the contemporary bright cut engraved presentation inscription:


‘Presented to Miss Emma Luen Flemming by Frederic Francis Ramuz at the laying of the Foundation Stone of Leigh-on-sea Public Hall, 9th April 1896’


The reverse of the blade is plain and unembellished.


The trowel retains the original, exceptional and large turned ivory handle ornamented grape vine decoration to the upper portion.


The original, cylindrical hallmarked ferrule is encircled with embossed vertical pale ornamentation, to a shaped chased decorated leaf style bolster.


Date: 1895

Condition


This antique presentation trowel is an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional presentation condition.

The chased decoration is very sharp and the bright cut engraved decoration is all very crisp.

Full hallmarks struck to the surface of the blade and ferrule are all very clear.


Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this piece of Victorian flatware.
