Large Antique French Brass Grain or Flour Scoop with Treen Handle
A wonderful example of a large French brass grain scoop, which typically would have been found in a shop serving flour and grains loosely.
Dating from the early to mid twentieth Century, these types of scoops were designed for weighing out grains and flour for sale. With a brass scoop and brass collared handle (on which an “L” is engraves), this is particularly attractive. This example is a large size, which would look excellent on display and is still extremely functional too.
All antique and vintage items do show signs of wear and tear, but this scoop is in excellent condition, with only minor tarnishing in places, which it might be possible to polish out. However, in my view, this adds to the patina and age of the piece.
