A large silver fruit bowl made by the renowned silversmiths Walker and Tolhurst and attributed to Gilbert Marks. Dated for London 1894. Gilbert Marks was perhaps the most skilled silversmith of his generation and in his short career produced some magnificent pieces of arts and crafts or art nouveau silver. The bowl is decorated with repousse wild flowers believed to represent Oxeye daisies. This piece is unusually not signed but has all the characteristics of Gilbert Marks’ early work for Walker & Tolhurst. It possibly pre-dates the period in which Walker and Tolhurst allowed Marks to sign his pieces and prior to his registering his own GM mark in 1895.
