EX7937 Frederick Elkington Dessert Service Birmingham 1888
A seven piece sterling dessert service by Frederick Elkington hallmarked Birmingham 1888. Ornate chased and pierced bowls and a fabulous figural pattern in parcel gilted detail.
It has been pointed out to me that the date of the silver flatware by Elkington corresponds with the opening of the "Yeoman of the Guard" production by Gilbert and Sullivan at the Savoy theater in London. These exotic flatware designs were part of the excitement and made to celebrate these important events.
Front and back fully decorated.
Length 8 3/4"(spoons) and 6 1/4" (sifter).
Weight 21.50 toz.
