An Artificers Guild silver bowl
Price range: Sold
A lovely silver bowl by the Artificers Guild, almost certainly designed by Edward Spencer. The bowl has a well cast applied frieze of stylized interwoven leaves and flowers with further classic Guild geometric engraving to the base. The interior is softly gilded.
The Artificers Guild was originally established by Nelson Dawson along similar lines to Charles Ashbee’s Guild of Handicrafts but quickly changed ownership and from 1902 it’s chief designer became Edward Spencer who took over the firm as a limited company in 1909.
