Description: A Tiffany sterling silver crumb scoop in the Hampton pattern, this scoop is excellent quality and weight, as you would expect from Tiffany. The scoop has a wide flat horizontal blade, with a rim on 3 sides to retain crumbs brushed from the table. Crumb Scoops arrived mid 19th century, and can still be seen in use in some high end restaurants and cruise ships. The Hampton pattern was designed by Charles Blake and was introduced in 1934, it is Art Deco in style, it has an architectural finial (like a pedestal) and matching bands lower down the handle. It was named after Hampton Court, the country palace of King Henry VIII, Tiffany describes the pattern as "both modern and classic, it's proportions harmonious like great architecture". The scoop is hallmarked "TIFFANY & CO M STERLING" on the side of the handle, the M refers to the period 1907-1947, when John Moore II was Director, so we can date this piece between 1934 and 1947.
