Silver trowel, 1844. Creator: Unknown

Silver trowel, 1844. This superb implement was manufactured for laying the first stone of the New Docks, at Birkenhead, and was used by Sir Philip Egerton, M.P...The trowel was designed and executed by Mr. Joseph Mayer, jeweller and goldsmith, of Lord-street, Liverpool. It is of unique design, its several ornaments being emblematical of commerce and navigation. The form of it is that of the Greek helm, or paddle. On the blade, or flat part, is chased in alto-rileivo, Terra, the Goddess of Earth, and Neptune, the God of the Sea, in the act of calling into existence Commerce and Navigation...The handle is composed of a dolphin...'. From "Illustrated London News", 1844, Vol V
