With a catalogue estimate of $12,000-$14,000, the 1879 and 1882 set, complete with maker’s marks for Holland, Son & Slater of London and Birmingham’s Elkington & Co, features a straight-sided jug with a bamboo bracket handle and foliate mounts.
A magnificent George II sterling silver breadbasket made in 1744 in London with maker’s marks for Aymé Videau is another attraction.
Also prominent a fine 1903 silver gilt Regency style covered cup or wine cooler and an 1874 Victorian Cellini pattern sterling silver ewer with London maker’s mark for Stephen Smith.
