A post war 1977 silver covered cup with enamel inset

Price: £875

For sale is this rare 1977 modernist silver cover bowl. The lid is set with stylised cloisonné enamel depicting what I think are trees and a cloud.

The silver carries the rare mark of Arabella Stuart, a little known silversmith who registered her mark in 1974.  This piece is  competently produced with particularly nice hand raised cup. The overall effect is charming – a modern take on a c 1900 Ashbee piece.

Condition is excellent, with just very small nibbles to the edge of the enamel. A very good gauge.
