Description


This exceptional antique Victorian sterling silver christening set consists of a mug, a napkin ring, a fork and a spoon.


The mug has a circular, slightly tapering, rounded form onto a domed spreading foot.


The upper portion of the body is embellished with a band of fine embossed and chased Bacchanalian style decoration, and the lower portion is encircled with floral festoons.


The foot is embellished with a band of applied egg and dart decoration to the rim.


The mug is fitted with a bead decorated angular handle with scrolling terminals.


The napkin ring is embellished with a matching band of Bacchanalian style ornamentation.


The band to both the body of the napkin ring and the mug incorporates a scrolling leaf bordered shaped vacant cartouche.


The mug and napkin ring both retain the original gilt interiors.


The fork and spoon are Bacchanalian pattern, embellished to both the anterior and reverse surfaces.


Both the spoon and the fork have cast mask ornamentation to the heel.


The pieces of this antique set are fitted to the original hinged leatherette box with satin and velvet lined interior, secured with a hinged catch.


The interior of the cover bears an ornately bordered retailer’s mark ‘Bracher & Sydenham Jewellers, 30-30A Queen Victorian Street, Reading’.


Each piece was crafted by Goldsmiths & Silversmiths Co (William Gibson & John Lawrence Langman), and the mug bears the retailer’s mark ‘Goldsmiths & Silversmiths Company, 112 Regent St’ to the underside.


Date: 1890

Condition


The pieces of this antique set are an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional presentation condition.

The box is in excellent condition in keeping with age.

The chased and embossed decoration is very sharp.

Full hallmarks struck to the surface of the mug and the reverse surface of the cutlery are all very clear; the full hallmarks to the surface of the napkin ring shows signs of wear but remain legible.


Reflections in photography may detract from the true representation of these examples of antique silverware.
