Description

Magnificent Sheffield 1894 Victorian English hallmarked solid silver large Christening or child's set of cutlery by famous maker John Round, in the original lovely Victorian fitted case.
John Round was known for his fine Art Nouveau designs and craftsmanship.
The original period leather case is monogrammed DMS and dated on the outside of the lid for the day it was presented to the original owner in 1895. The interior of the case is a striking aubergine coloured silk and velvet.
The two pieces of silver, appearing to never have been used, are just stunning. The set consists of a spoon and fork beautifully all over engraved on both sides with a decoration of ginkgo leaves, a primitive species which preceded dinosaurs! Ginkgo leaves are often used for decorating antiques, as they are symbolic of longevity and hope. Both the decoration and the hallmarks are crisp and beautifully executed. There are delicate scrolled initials DMS in script on the front side of the stem, with a blank cartouche on the reverse.
Weight-100 grams.
Size-spoon, 7 inches long by 1.5 inches wide. Fork, 6 5/8 inches long by 7/8 inches wide.
A beautifully made and unique set of silver, heavy in weight, with a thick gauge of silver and in a larger more impressive size than normally found. The set is made by a famous maker and comes fitted into the original case.
An excellent Victorian example of superior quality.
In very good condition, this would make a wonderful and special Christening or baby gift, or a gift for a child to keep forever.
