Silver bowl with Gothic style legs

£295.00Price

James Dixon & Sons - Sheffield 1906

 

This pierced silver bowl has gothic revival legs on a classically shaped bowl with symmetrical foliate piercing. On paper these ideas shouldn’t work but in fact they harmonise very well, the legs in particular elevating the design from the ordinary to the intriguing. The pointed trefoil shape of the legs is redolent of church windows and the double outline of the design gives particular definition.

 

Made in Sheffield in 1906 by James Dixon & Sons, fine designers and makers of both solid and plated silver, this bowl is a useable and decorative item that not only serves a function but also tells a story of British design history.
