To accommodate the extraction of the marrow from the bone centers, silver spoons with a long narrow scoop
at one end were used, the earliest on record c 1690. These marrow spoons were quickly superseded by marrow
scoops, which had a large scoop at one end, and small scoop at the other - suitable to differing widths of bone.
Scoops were made only until the late 19th century.
