The idea of the marrow scoop was developed during the 1680’s, when the marrow spoon was first created as a utensil purely for the eating of bone marrow, which at the time was considered a delicacy, highly prized for its richness. The marrow scoop itself was actually first seen at the start of the 18th Century, and its design soon became more popular than the earlier form. In the 19th Century marrow scoops were made to match sets of flatware, however they fell out of common use towards the end of the Victorian period.
