A STUNNING SOLID SILVER AND 22CARAT GOLD GILDED TABLE CENTREPIECE.
THIS WAS MADE BY THE FAMOUS LONDON COMPANY OF SILVERSMITHS,ASPREY,BY APPOINTMENT TO THE QUEEN.
THIS CENTREPIECE IS UNIQUE,THERE WAS ONLY ONE MADE AND THE MOULD HAS BEEN DESTROYED.IT WAS UNIQUELY COMMISSIONED BY A WELL KNOWN PUBLIC FIGURE,WHOSE NAME I AM FORBIDDEN TO DIVULGE.
IT IS A REPLICA OF MID VICTORIAN NATURALISTIC STYLE.IT IS STYLED AS AN OAK TREE,COMPLETE WITH INTRICATELY CRAFTED TRUNK AND BRANCHES.THE BRANCHES AND FIGURES DEPICTED ARE OF 22 CT GOLD ON SILVER.
THE PIECE FEATURES A SEE-SAW,SEATED UPON WHICH ARE TWO CHILDREN IN MID VICTORIAN DRESS.NOTE THE GREAT DETAIL OF THE LITTLE GIRL'S SHOES AND THE BOY'S TUNIC AND BOOTS.THERE IS A THIRD CHILD BEHIND THE GIRL,WIELDING A STICK.THE BASE OF THE TREE IS FULL OF DETAIL IN THIS MODERN INTERPRETATION OF THE NATURALISTIC STYLE.
RESTING UPON THE BRANCES TO THE TOP IS A HAND BLOWN GLASS DISH WITH ETCHED FOLIATE DECORATION AND A CENTRAL FUNNEL.
I AM AT LIBERTY TO REVEAL THE COST OF THIS ITEM TO THE EVENTUAL BUYER.
THIS IS THE FUTURE "HISTORIC" SILVER,AND WILL BECOME HIGHLY SOUGHT AFTER AS THE YEARS GO ON.A WOODEN CRATE HAS BEEN SPECIALLY MADE FOR TRANSPORTATION.MORE PHOTOGRAPHS AND INFORMATION IS AVAILABLE ON REQUEST.
