RARE GEORGIAN PROVINCIAL SILVER MARROW SCOOP, "REVERSE BOWL"
Marked 'A S' twice, Probably Late 18th / Early 19th Century
Of rare elongated tapering form, the squared off bowls facing in opposite directions,
marked twice at the waist A S in a rectangular punch, the reverse side with contemporary
conjoined script monogram 'JWB' or 'TWB' with flourishes
We have offered reverse bowl scoops from England, Ireland and Scotland,
all dating from the 18th century. However we have not offered one of this form.
Provincial silver is often marked with two or three punches of initials only.
The marks correspond to those of Scottish Provincial silversmith, Alexander Stewart,
registered with various marks, with and without a pellet,
in both Inverness and Tain, from 1800-1825.
However, without town marks, accurate attribution is extremely difficult.
