This is a very beautiful silver and enamel lidded bowl designed by Charles Robert Ashbee and hallmarked for Guild of Handicrafts Ltd and London 1901.
The bowl is gently hand hammered throughout in typical Arts and Crafts style.
The enamel decorating the lid is absolutely stunning and depicts a collared reindeer stag frollicking in a wooded meadow.
It is impossible to do justice to the quality of the enamel work in photographs. The colours used are extremely vivid and are the work of a master enameller.
