Silver

A small arts and crafts silver cup or chalice

Price: £375

A really interesting small silver cup or chalice. It is not assayed but carries a makers mark for a dolphin or fish – see images.  I have not been able to identify the mark but it would be unusual to make a makers punch and only use it once, so there must be other pieces out there, possibly in copper. Based on the design of the piece, it may be a Leicester School of Arts piece, though the mark itself points perhaps to a Newlyn School worker.  I am certain it is British and dates to c 1900-1920.  A lovely piece to own and research – I have now had my fun with it and admitted defeat!

Condition is very good.
