James Dixon And Sons Silverplated Sugar Bowl Dr Christopher Dresser (att) 1880s For Sale
A silver plated sugar bowl attributed to Dr Christopher Dresser for James Dixon and Sons, Sheffield, c.1880 With ebonised wood swing handle, maker's hallmarks and shape number.
The piece measures approximately 14.5 cm in diameter.
Surviving documentary evidence of Dresser's relationship with Dixon is limited, but it is known that he sold 37 designs to the company between 1879 and 1882. These included some of his most radical designs, most notably a pair of electroplated teapots. I believe that this piece is likely to be anexample from this period, reflecting his growing fascination with Japanese design and visionary concern for function above decoration. Very condition indeed - with just a few extremely minor surface traces of age and no damages. Please see the additional photos at the bottom of this page.

All buyers please make contact within 3 days of sale. Payment is required within 7 days.
All non-paying buyers are, without exception, reported to . This is not for the sake of being vindictive, but because charges retrospective fees calculated on the actual sale price of items and this money needs to be retrieved. Believe it or not, it's hard enough to make ends meet on here as it is! Thank you for your understanding. Please refer to 's policy on non-payment for more information, including its ramifications for the buyer.
Condition of items
Please note that, unless clearly stated otherwise, my listings are for vintage/antique items and therefore, by definition, are not going to be in the same condition you would expect from a brand new item. Please be assured that I always endeavour to offer the most accurate description possible of the item's condition and take multiple illustrative photographs.
Vintage electrical items
Unless clearly stated otherwise in the description, vintage electrical items are sold in their original condition so should be safety checked by an electrician before use.
Returns are possible, if reported within 7 days and by prior arrangement, if a mistake has been made in the listing and the item is not as described, but for no other reason. I'm afraid that buyer's remorse does not qualify and the cost of return postage is not included in any refund.
