For Elkington, his ‘Graeco Pompeian’ Dessert Service, one of many of his works displayed on the firm’s stand at the London International Exhibition in 1862, proved highly popular, leading to the award of the Exhibition Medal at the London International Exhibition of 1862. In particular, the lightness and originality of the strictly classical design provided Elkington with the ideal opportunity to display the Birmingham firm’s mastery of the traditional skills of the goldsmith’s art combined with its latest technical innovations such as electro-gilding and forming. The Art Journal described the Service in glowing terms, “A very notable feature in the contributions of Messrs Elkington was a magnificent Dessert Service, designed by A Willms, in the Pompeian style, and executed in silver, enriched with enamel and gold”.
