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.

LOUIS OSMAN Cavendish Square Architectural Model
Made by Louis Osman in 1950

War damage to Palladian houses in Cavendish Square, London owned by the Sisters of the Society of the Holy Child Jesus needed restoration and the 33 year old Louis Osman took it on. This wood model of his design for a bridge linking Nos. 12 and 13 was actually sent to Rome for approval. (It was delayed in customs for some weeks). The statue of the Madonna and Child was by Jacob Epstein and unfortunately the original maquette by Epstein is missing from this model.
Height: 61 cm
Width: 33 cm
Depth: 16 cm

Illustrated on page 38 'Louis Osman' by Jenny Moore

Provenence: Acquired when Osman's house Harpton Court, Presteigne was sold by his daughter, Marie-Louise

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.
All 12 Place - 60 Piece sets (unless otherwise stated)
