Late Victorian Silver Cheese Scoop with Ivory Handle

A beautiful late Victorian silver cheese scoop.

It has a plain shaped ivory handle, and a silver ferrell with a curved blade. It has been made from a very good gauge of silver, and feels very heavy in the hand.

Cheese scoops were used to cut out an individual portion from a large round (usually, in those days, piece of) stilton. Some were made with a silver handle, but those with ivory handles were very popular and equally strong. This is a very well-made piece.

This fine late Victorian silver cheese scoop was made in 1899 by William Hutton of London.
