The Isle of Ely was an island in a sea marsh until the seventeenth century. The long connection with the sea is reflected in the design of the goblet with the mermaid holding the three keys of Ely, the Cathedralís heraldic device. The octagonal stem with its wave-like texture is based on the great vault surmounted by a tower of oak.

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.'
