Just looked it up and apparently they were "presentation Trowels " usually awarded to commemorate the laying of the first stone of a building of whatever was going on to whoever was deemed to be worthy of receiving one . Most are in Silver ,and were very popular from the Victorian to early 1900`s eras..
