E A Sallis Benney, Gerald's father was Principal and Dunstan Pruden Head of silversmithing. Anthony Elson studied under Pruden there in 1955 so I asked him about this spoon.
'The first thing that Pruden asked his full time students to make was a small bowl followed by a jug. This involved raising, planishing and shaping and finally soldering and all of this took several weeks to complete. Now his part time evening students were encouraged to make shallow bowls, spoons etc so that they could complete them within a term and have something to show for their labours.'

Styles Silver commissioned James Dougall to make a limited edition of 12 silver caddy spoons for the Queens Diamond Jubilee.
James was an obvious choice to design these caddy spoons, as his work with shagreen is very special. and the Purple here almost has a 'regal' feel to it.
This is the last one available - with signed limited edition certificate
