For sale is this rare WAS Benson silver bowl. This is my first piece of Benson silver in the Collection reflecting the rarity of his sterling silver designs. It is also fair to say that Benson reserved his best work for materials other than silver and this is the first piece in sterling that I have seen by him with some really nice original design features, notably the ball feet.
Based on catalogue evidence Benson made silver for his luxury catalogues in around 1910 -1914 and this piece is clearly hallmarked for London 1910.
