PROVENANCE:  The GERALD and JANET BENNEY  Collection of Silver

This was probably the first piece of silver made by Gerald Benney at the the Brighton College of Art in 1946.

(He studied under Dunstan Pruden there until 1948,)

ANTHONY ELSON studied under Pruden at Brighton in 1955 and he told me:
'The first thing that Pruden asked his fulltime students to make was a small bowl. This involved raising, planishing and shaping and finally soldering and all this took several weeks to complete.' 

Gerald's father, Ernest Sallis Benney, was Principal of the Brighton School so would have had access to their mark to assay it for him later.

Bonhams 20 November 2013 Lot 114 catalogue reads:
This was possibly made earlier and similar to other noted works made by Gerald while at the Brighton College of Art later hallmarked.

Old English Pattern
Following on from Hanoverian without rat-tail came Plain Old English which was very popular from 1760 to 1800. The forks were now four pronged and the end of the spoon turned down instead of up so that they could be crested or initialled on the front. This remains one of the most popular patterns as it can be used equally well in a modern or antique setting.

All sets come in cutlery rolls unless boxed.
