<img target="_blank"><img STUNNING ANTIQUE SILVER PLATED CENTRE PIECE 'POMEGRANATE' TREE BY ELKINGTON & CO

HI , AND WELCOME TO THIS sale FOR A THE MOST FABULOUS, ANTIQUE SILVER PLATED CENTRE PIECE, MADE BY ELKINGTON'S.

IT IS IN THE FABULOUS FORM OF A ' POMEGRANATE ' TREE & A SIMPLY STUNNING ITEM, OF THE HIGHEST QUALITY. WITH AN ATTENTION TO DETAIL THAT IS TRUELY AMAZING.

EACH & EVERY LEAF HAS ALL ITS LITTLE 'VEINS', THE BARK OF THE TREE & BRANCHES IS AS LIFE LIKE AS ANYTHING, AND EACH ONE OF THE BEAUTIFULLY SCULPTURED POMEGRANATES LOOK REAL ENOUGH TO ENJOY. VERY TASTY!!

A REAL, HEAVY QUALITY PIECE, WITH A WONDERFUL, THICK GAUGE OF SILVERING.

WOULD HAVE SAT IN THE CENTRE OF THE DINING TABLE FOR ALL TO ADMIRE, AND A GLASS BOWL COULD BE PLACED UPON THE BRANCHES TO SERVE EITHER FRUIT OR BREAD ROLLS PERHAPS. HOWEVER, POMEGRANATES WOULD BE A MORE FITTING TREAT IN THIS INSTANCE !!

A STUNNING EXAMPLE OF VERY EARLY ELECTRO PLATE. THAT IS DATED FOR 1854.

SO WAS MADE JUST AFTER THE GREAT EXHIBITION OF 1851, AND WOULD HAVE BEEN WITHIN ELKINGTONS TRADE CATALOGUE OF THAT PERIOD & WOULD HAVE BEEN ADMIRED BY THE VICTORIANS FOR BOTH ITS REALISM & NATURAL APPEARANCE.

AND AS WITH ALL ELKINGTON PIECES, IN PARTICULAR THEIR EARLY WORKS LIKE THIS, IT IS OF A MOST AMAZING QUALITY & WITH A CRAFTSMANSHIP THAT WAS SECOND TO NONE.

PIECES LIKE THIS ONE WERE THE DRIVING FORCE BEHIND ELKINGTON'S SUCESS BOTH AT HOME & ABROAD. AS AMAZING ITEMS LIKE THIS SCULPTURED TREE WERE SOMETHING THAT WAS IMPOSSIBLE TO MAKE IN ' OLD SHEFFIELD PLATE ', AND ONE OF THE REASONS BEHIND ITS DECLINE & WHY ELECTRO PLATE SUCEEDED THEM.

CONDITION :

THIS IS A FABULOUS PIECE & IN BEAUTIFUL CONDITION.

NO WEAR OR PLATE LOSS AT ALL, SIMPLY STUNNING.

ONLY SLIGHT FAULT TO NOTE IS THAT A VERY SMALL 'BRANCH' HAS COME OFF AT SOME POINT IN ITS LIFE {PLEASE SEE PHOTO NUMBER 6} AND THERE ARE A COUPLE OF VERY TINY 'SOLDER' MARKS.

BUT DOES NOT LOOK BAD AT ALL, AND INFACT IS NOT EASY TO NOTICE UNLESS YOU ARE LOOKING VERY CLOSELY.

APART FROM THIS 1, VERY MINOR ISSUE, IT IS FANTASTIC IN EVERY WAY.

A GRAND PIECE THAT WILL MAKE FOR A SUPERB ADDITION TO ANY SILVER PLATE COLLECTION.

SIZE & WEIGHT :

MEASURES 24 CM IN DIAMETER AT THE TOP, WITH A 13 CM DIAMETER AT THE BASE. STANDS AT 20 CM TALL.

WEIGHT IS AN IMPRESSIVE = 1277 GRAMS / ALMOST 1.3 KG'S.

A REAL HEAVY QUALITY PIECE.

MAKERSMARKS/ HALL MARKS :

  • 'E & CO' UNDER A CROWN & INSIDE A SHEILD - MAKERS MARK FOR ' ELKINGTON & CO ' SILVERSMITHS OF BIRMINGHAM
  • GOTHIC 'E' INSIDE A SQUARE - MARK FOR ELKINGTON'S
  • LETTER ' P ' INSIDE A DIAMOND - EARLY ELKINGTON DATE LETTER FOR 1854

PLEASE VIEW ALL PHOTOS SO THAT YOU CAN FULLY APPREICIATE WHAT A FABULOUS & SIMPLY STUNNING COLLECTABLE PIECE THIS IS.

SO THERE WE HAVE IT. AN AMAZING, ANTIQUE SILVER PLATED CENTRE PIECE, OF THE FINEST QUALITY & BY THE VERY FAMOUS SILVERSMITHS ' ELKINGTON & CO '. A PIECE THAT WOULD DELIGHT ANY ANTIQUE / SILVER PLATE COLLECTOR.
