Some say it's an apple corer. Others say it's a marrow scoop. What I say is that it's a quality, interesting, early utensil. It has the rare added attraction of a handsome incised decorative pattern carved into its handle. In great condition. We found it in England, the Suffolk area, and would bet our bottom dollar it was made on a farm thereabouts. About 5"L. Was $74, now $50.
