Set of Four Sterling Silver Dinner Plates – Antique Edwardian (1902) – A8941


Hello my name’s Andrew Campbell, welcome to
AC silver. These fine and impressive set of four antique
Edwardian English sterling silver dinner plates in the Arts and Crafts style, are quite exceptional
examples. They have been made by the renowned Birmingham
Arts and Crafts silversmith, Thomas Adolphus Falcon. The plates have a circular form to a circular
collet style foot. Each piece is a planished finish, in the iconic
Arts and Crafts style. The raised borders of three of the plates
are encompassed with impressive chased Arts and Crafts style decoration incorporating
interlacing fruiting vine ornamentation. The fourth plate bares convex vacant cartouches
admidst scrolling leaf decoration intersected by four large textured panels all in the Arts
and Crafts style. The rim of each plate is encircled with a
chased bead decorated border. The circular well of three plates are ornamented
with textured Arts and Crafts style motifs to the center. The fourth is plain and unembellished. All the decoration is sharp. Full hallmarks struck to the surface of each
plate are very clear. At a weight of 72 troy ounces they can be
considered to be an exceptional gauge of silver. Certainly the plates can be also considered
to be in presentation condition. The plates are supplied with storage bags
which are excellent for anti-tarnish. The highlighted features for these exceptional
plates, make them ones that could be sold with my highest recommendations. If you require any further information or
assistance regarding these exceptional plates, please do not hesitate to contact us via telephone
