Charles Stuart Harris Furniture

British

Although little information exists about London silversmith Charles Stuart Harris, his exquisite sterling silverware and serveware — the ornate and distinctive bowls encircled with chased scrolling leaf decoration, the platters featuring Vitruvian scrollwork, the centerpieces with their leaf-capped and scrolled arms he designed as well as those produced by the family firm C.S. Harris & Sons Ltd. — is a testament to an age of refinement and elegance.

Harris was from a family of silversmiths active in London in the mid-19th century. In 1817, the firm now known as C.S. Harris & Sons Ltd. was founded by John Mark Harris, a spoon maker. His son, John Robert Harris, took over the family company in 1843, listed as a silver spoon and fork manufacturer.

Neoclassical-style sterling-silver goods in Europe gained popularity in the late 18th century — a taste for sterling-silver tableware, as well as tea sets, had taken shape — while in the United States, beginning in the 19th century, preparing the dinner table with sterling-silver flatware had become somewhat of a standard practice. 

Around 1852, the business passed to Charles Harris, who was registered as an electroplater and gilder, a maker of spoons and forks as well as a silversmith. At first, under Harris, the family firm continued as a manufacturer of spoons and forks; however, they later expanded into making cutlery and flatware.

By 1881, the company was formally registered under Harris’s name — Charles Stuart Harris — and it earned a reputation for its utilitarian flatware. In 1897, when the business became known as C.S. Harris & Sons Ltd., they were listed as manufacturers and dealers in gold and silverplate. By this time, the company produced additional furnishings and objects such as serveware, candle holders and tea caddies. They also retailed in wire and lace, silver and gold diamond jewelry and watches. 

It is said that by 1900, C.S. Harris & Sons Ltd. sent more silver to London’s Assay Office to be hallmarked than any other silversmith company. Shortly after the turn of the 20th century, Harris retired. In 1933, C.S. Harris & Sons Ltd. merged with I. Freeman and Company.

Today, items produced by Harris remain highly coveted by collectors of Victorian and Edwardian sterling silverware and decorative objects.

Edwardian neoclassical style sterling silver trophy cup & cover
By Charles Stuart Harris
Located in London, GB
Elegant urn-shaped silver trophy cup and cover in the restrained and graceful neoclassical Adam style with long sweeping handles decorated with a fine thread pattern decoration. Bands of thread decoration surround the body and the spreading silver base is similarly adorned. The silver trophy's cover follows similar sweeping lines and is surmounted with an urn-shaped finial. Made in the early 20th century by one of the most celebrated silversmiths, Charles Stuart Harris, this trophy has been crafted in a good quality gauge of silver and is perfect for engraving. The neoclassical motifs seen in this trophy, reflect the classical architectural designs of the Greek and Roman empires. Classical designs included columns, pediments, Greek key patterns, acanthus leaves, urns and festoons of fruit and flowers. The Adam style is a neoclassical style of architecture and interior design that found its niche from the late 1760s in upper and middle-class residences in England, Scotland, Russia and the USA and named after Scottish architect William Adam and his sons, of whom James Adam...
