Pair Of Silver/enamel Pickle Forks By Arts & Crafts Silversmith Bernard Instone For Sale
You may very well decide to offer on a very fine and heavy pair of solid silver and floral enamel handled Pickle Forks by Arts and Crafts silversmith, Bernard Instone. If you take the time to look Instone up, you will find that he is a silversmith of documented distinction. He was born in Birmingham in 1891 and aged just 12, he went to the Vittoria Street School on a scholarship that was so successful that he continued on at the school with two further scholarships studying practical silversmithing and Jewellery. Later, upon an invitation from German court Goldsmith Emile Lettre, Bernard travelled with his brother to study in Berlin and subsequently, some years later, was made a Freeman of the Goldsmith's company in England in 1936 and a Liveryman in 1938. By now, he was selling very successfully indeed to a very wide range of clients and noteably, in the 1940's, started supplying Liberty's (London) as well as opening a retail outlet in Salcome, Devon. In 1953, Bernard moved the business to Solihull where his sons, John and Paul gradually took over.
The present silver and enamel Pickle Forks offered are in perfect condition as they were recently directly aquired from a descendant from the Instone family and as such have never actually been previouslyretailed or offered for sale. The heavy hand crafted silver (made from one single block) Forks are 14.5cm in length and boast superbly detailed floral enamelled handles in high Arts and Crafts tradition and as you will see, each is fully marked and bears the recognised marks for Instone and the Birmingham assay office. The pair will be sold (with price) to the highest buyer and shipped (postage free) within two working days of cleared payment having been received. offer with absolute confidence as evidenced by seller's response, these are among the finest quality silver Arts and Crafts pieces that we have ever collected and you WILL NOT be dissapointed.
As ever, any questions welcomed, thank you for taking the time to look and very good luck should you decide to offer.
