Description

A pair of wonderful Art Nouveau dishes. One dish is hallmarked London, 1910 and the other is hallmarked Sheffield, 1911 – both Elkington & Co.

Both dishes are fitted with the marvellous green glass typical of the ‘Nouveau’ movement and both the bodies and the glass are in top class condition.

The dishes are finely engraved and splendidly hand pierced. To the underneath of each there is a design registry mark: Rd 523932 – which means that the design was registered in early May 1908. Designs were registered to stop competitors copying the original designers (as in a copyright).

These are a pair of outstanding large centrepieces.

We would be prepared to sell them individually.

Dimensions: height 23. 5 cm, width (of bowl) 25 cm, width (of bowl over handles) 34.5 cm; weight (the pair and without the glass) 81 troy oz.

Maker
Elkington & Co

Elkington & Co. was a silver manufacturer from Birmingham, England. It was founded by George Richards Elkington and his brother, Henry Elkington, in the 1830s.

It operated under the name G. R. Elkington & Co. until 1842, when a third partner, Josiah Mason, joined the firm. It operated as Elkington, Mason, & Co. until 1861, when the partnership with Mason was terminated.

The firm operated independently as Elkington & Co. from 1861 until 1963. It was then taken over by British Silverware, Ltd. In 1971 British Silverware, Ltd. became a subsidiary of Delta Metal Co. Ltd.

Over the course of history, it became very successful and was one of the prime producers of silver plating. Elkington received various royal warrants of appointments, and an Imperial and Royal Warrant of Appointment from the emperor of Austria.

One of their most famous pieces is the electrotype copy of the Jerningham Wine Cooler at the Victoria & Albert Museum.One of the most important 19th century Silversmiths finally dissolving in the late 1960s.
