This 200-plus year old 800 silver (sterling is 925) sugar shovel was made in France between 1797 and 1819. It's 4-3/4 inches long with a scoop that is an inch long by 3/4" wide. The handle has five different stamped marks. The unidentified maker's mark has the initials JEL with a plant or tree motif. The others are a rooster with the number 2 to the left, the goddess Minerva head, what appears to be a tiny face, and an even smaller mark that resembles a hatchet, possibly.

The shovel is in excellent condition for its age, with one barely-there bend to the thinnest part of the handle at near mid-point. Weight 15 grams.
