A Charles Ashbee for the Guild of Handicraft gem set pepper

For sale is this is fantastic small silver pepper designed by Charles Ashbee for the Guild of Handicraft.  The pepper  is set with green stones which I believe to be chrysoprase.  The pepper is fully hallmarked to base and lid and appears in Ashbee’s Modern English Silver Work, plate, 38. It can also be seen in a photograph of a collection of Ashbee silver published in The Artist, (Vol 33, Jan 1902, Page 17) – see images.

Condition is excellent.

See item A597 for an unmarked set of four, including a pair of peppers near identical to this one.
