STUNNING ANTIQUE SILVER PLATED 14 PIECE 'BOAT SHAPED' EGG CRUET SET ~JAMES DIXON

HI , AND WELCOME TO THIS sale FOR THE MOST FABULOUS & LARGE, 14 PIECE ANTIQUE SILVER PLATED EGG CRUET SET, OF THE FINEST VICTORIAN QUALITY.

MADE BY THE WORLD FAMOUS SHEFFIELD SILVERSMITHS ''JAMES DIXON & SONS'', AND IS A VERY EARLY, ELECTRO PLATED PIECE BY THEM CIRCA 1840'S - 1850'S, AS THE MAKERS MARKS SHOW.

A FABULOUS, AND QUITE RARE '14 PIECE' EGG CRUET SET. WITH 6 X EGG CUPS, 6 X EGG SPOONS, 1 X LARGE BOAT SHAPED CRUET FRAME & 1 X RARE CENTRAL PEDASTAL SALT CELLAR.

OF AMAZING, HIGH QUALITY, WITH A VERY THICK & HEAVY GAUGE OF SILVERING, AS IS MOST TYPICAL WITH VERY EARLY ELECTRO PLATE.

THE CRUET FRAME IS OF A WONDERFUL '' BOAT SHAPED '' FORM, AND WHEN THE SPOONS ARE SAT INSIDE THEIR HOLDERS THEY LOOK LIKE ROWING ' OARS'. EVEN THE CENTRAL, PEDASTAL SALT BASKET LOOKS LIKE A 'MAST WITH CROWS NEST' ON TOP. A TRUELY MAGNIFICENT PIECE.

IN KEEPING WITH THE 'BOAT' THEME, THE SIDES ARE ADORNED WITH LOVELY 'ROPETWIST' BANDING. THE SWING HANDLE TOO IS OF A 'ROPETWIST' FORM. THIS IS TOPPED WITH AN OVAL CARTOUCHE & DECORATED WITH CLAM SHELLS EITHER SIDE.

THE FRAME BASE HAS A FINE GALLERY EDGE WITH BEAUTIFUL, PIERCED PATTERNS.

TO THE UNDERSIDE {A PLACE THAT IS OFTEN OVERLOOKED} THE QUALITY IS EVEN MORE IMPRESSIVE & EASY TO SEE.

INSTEAD OF BLOBS OF SOLDER TO HOLD THE 'KNOPS' IN PLACE FOR THE EGG CUPS ON TOP, THERE ARE 6 X FINE SILVERED 'CAPS' TO CONCEAL THE SOLDER WORK. THESE BLEND IN WELL WITH THE 4 X LOVELY 'OVAL' SHAPED FEET. AND EVEN THE 2 ORIGINAL SILVERED WING NUTS ARE PRESENT & CORRECT.

A SIMPLY SUPERB EGG CRUET SET, IN A WONDERFUL SHAPE & STYLE OF THE FINEST QUALITY.

CONDITION :

IT HAS A FABULOUS LUSTRE & SHINE, AND LOOKS BEAUTIFUL.

A FEW VERY SLIGHT MARKS TO EGG CUPS, AND WHERE THEY SIT ON FRAME. AND A LITTLE TARNISH INSIDE SALT CELLAR. BUT ALL VERY MINIMAL.

THIS IS BOTH EXCELLENT FOR DISPLAY & USE.

SIZE & WEIGHT :

THE BASE FRAME MEASURES 28 CM LONG, 19 CM WIDE & IS 17 CM TALL INCLUDING HANDLE.

EACH EGG CUPS IS 7 CM TALL.

SPOONS ARE EACH 11 CM LONG.
