Dating circa 1860, this 7 3/4" long, 1.9 T. oz., cheese scoop is marked with an "H, star, anchor," pseudo hallmark that is attributed to New York City silversmith Henry Hebbard, who at various times had working associations with John Polhamus, George Strong, and George Moore. Some of Hebbard's designs were later produced by Whiting.

It is a robust piece, with a broad, slightly upturned end, "Fiddle Thread" aka "French Thread" pattern handle.

This is engraved in script lettering "M.W.C." on the front and "M.L.C." on the reverse.

The actual scoop is 2" long and 1 3/8" wide, and has a rounded end with thick walled, raised sides.

In excellent condition, this appears to have been little used. It is without bends, nicks, or other marring, and has a pleasing patina.
