A huge (9.25"!) soft cheese scoop, in hallmarked silverplate attached through a sterling ferrule to a heavy 3.875" shaped and carved handle of Australian ocean pearl oyster (Pinctada maxima).
The white pearl is undamaged, fully reflective front and back, and of best quality with lots of colorful iridescence as well as plenty of internal figuration. Not abused, the metal shows only the slightest of wear.
Just the right size for dishing up Kitty Queen to your favorite pampered cat!

Pearlescence and chatoyance predominate, with occasional amber, linens, china, and select "smalls".
