This elegant cheese scoop has a brite cut scoop, a twist stem and a ball finial to terminal end. While there is no makers mark it bears all the styles and workmanship of George Sharp and has been identified as his piece. There is lovely floral brite cut work to the bowl that is showing some wear from use. The handle is twisted up to a ball finial that is brite cut with a geometric pattern. The top of the ball has a fading AMS monogram. It is a lovely stylized cheese scoop
