Silver

An unusually large A E Jones silver sugar caster

Price: £425

A very large arts and crafts silver A E Jones sugar caster, of good gauge.  The caster carries a frieze of  silver lozenges of stylised flowers or leaves, a nicely hand hammered body and twisted wirework to the base. Hallmarked for Birmingham 1916.  A particularly striking example of this Jones classic design, the sugar carries the retail mark of Debenhams and the Jones model number 660.  At the risk of igniting the giggles, I can honestly say I have not seen one this big.
