On Tuesday, May 10, starting at 7 pm Eastern time, Jasper52 will conduct a sale of Fine Sterling Silver and Decorative Art. The carefully curated auction features just 57 lots that nonetheless represent a deep and broad survey of the silversmith’s art. Earning a place in the lineup is a Georgian-style sterling silver epergne centerpiece, fitted with four baskets and dating to 1909; a pair of 1809 shell-shaped Georgian Rococo Revival sauce boats; and a five-piece Victorian tea and coffee silver set with kettle.
The highlights continue with a circa-1880 French silver gilt, glass and enamel inkstand clock; a sterling silver and wood horseshoes game set from 1996 in a velvet-lined case, a 1763 George III silver tea caddy with chinoiserie decoration, a 1937 pair of sterling silver ewers by Omar Ramsden, and a mid-century Georg Jensen vegetable tureen, dish and cover, part of pattern no. 228. Also included in the sale are: an Art Nouveau table clock from 1913 in the Tree of Life design, a George II silver gilt lidded trophy dating to 1738, a four-piece silver condiment set created by Gerald Benney in 1968, a pair of solid silver pheasants, a cock and a hen, rendered in Germany in 1938 but featuring an English import mark; a George III sterling silver basket for cake, bread or fruit, with an elaborately detailed rim; a solid silver lidded box or bowl, made in Iran circa 1940; antique candlesticks, tankards and trays; and a large French silver cigar box from 1910.
