An Arts and Crafts Charger by the Dutchess of Sutherland Cripples Guild DSCG
This magnificent silver on copper Arts and Crafts charger was made by DSCG: The Dutchess of Sutherland Cripples Guild. It is large, and like much of the Guild's work, has a heavy Tudor influence. It stands on a heavy collet foot, and measures over 40.6 centimetres (16 inches) in diameter. It was made circa 1900.
Generally the condition is excellent, although there is a small split as pictured on the edge, where two flutes meet. The copper is showing through the plate a little, which to a collector is desirable, and evidence that it has not been replated! DSCG work of this size is rare and desirable, and I am happy to admit that this is the best piece I have owned.
Price: £ 750 GBP
