Object Description

I am delighted to add another sterling silver piece by Christopher Dresser to the Collection. To my mind he is without doubt the father of both modern and commercial design. Pieces that are unequivocally designed by Dresser and of the period in sterling silver are rare. This piece is hallmarked for Hukin and Heath 1881, for whom Dresser did the original design in around 1880, model number 2223 . Like most Dresser designs it was mainly produced in plate. An example is held by the Victoria and Albert Museum – see link.
The dish’s classic modern design, far ahead of the Victorian era, makes it a work of art in its own right.
Condition is excellent, though it is missing its woven handle. There is a small french import mark alongside the London assay marks.
