For sale is an extraordinary sculptural piece by Elkington & Co, 1902. The design is based on Botticelli’s The Birth of Venus, in this case holding aloft a shell dish. The nude form shows the influence of the new sculpture and art nouveau movements that were current at this time. Without doubt the piece has all the attributes of Elkington’s artistic designer, and sculpturess, Florence Harriet Steele. At 43cm tall, weighing over 2kgs, the scale of this piece in sterling silver is remarkable; I have only seen pieces like this previously in plate, pewter or bronze. Condition is very good with some small bruises commensurate with age to the shell dish.
Very good
