A pair of Alice Mabel Camwell boxed spoons

For sale is this pair of well made arts and crafts spoons (probably grapefruit spoons) in their original box.  They are by a rare maker Alice Mabel Camwell.  Alice Camwell was first noted as exhibiting at the Royal Society of Artists Birmingham Arts and Crafts Exhibition in 1909, and as receiving a mention at The National Competition of Schools of Art in 1909, at the time she was attending the School of Art, Margaret Street, Birmingham. She received another mention at the same competition in 1911. In the 1911 census, aged 30, she is listed as born in Staffordshire in 1881, and her occupation was recorded as Enameller Jeweller.  In the 1939 Register (pre-war census) she is listed as “Art teacher, goldsmith and silversmith”.  It seems she lived in or around Birmingham her whole life where it is presumed she taught metalwork. She died in 1946.
