A large silver spoon and fork pair by Adrian Harlaar

See item A1281 for a full write-up on Adrian Harlaar the maker of this spoon and fork.

These pieces are not assayed but are marked with a monogram for ATH that I am certain is for Adrian Harlaar, know apparently as Adrian of The Hook.  The spoon and fork is of a very heavy gauge inspired by medieval English cutlery.

Dutchman Adrian (Adrianus) Harlaar made his home in England from c 1900 and married an English wife Beatrice in 1903.  Adrian Harlaar (1868-1942) was an “art metalworker”.  He taught at the Sir John Cass Institute from c 1909, probably up until the war in 1914.  In the 1910 Arts and Crafts Exhibition Society he is listed as executing a “biscuit box” (Exhibit 292) designed by Harold Stabler.  By the 1921 census he is listed as a Trade Union Secretary for the National Brass and Metal Mechanics.  He reappears in the 1939 Directory again as an “art metalworker”.
