Rare Omar Ramsden Sterling Silver Arts & Crafts Centrepiece / Rose Bowl 1934

About

A magnificent sterling silver Arts & Crafts design centrepiece by the esteemed silversmith Omar Ramsden. The centrepiece is in a shaped-oblong form suggestive of a boat with central projections featuring the arms of Baron Hyndley of Meads, Sussex. The body of the centrepiece features applied insignia for a Knight Bachelor, a Baronet, a knighthood of the Order of the Crown of Italy and the 1935 jubilee medal for George V. At each end of the Centrepiece is a Mermaid on rope support. The Bowl has a removable flower grille, alllowing for its use as a rose bowl. The centrepiece is accompanied by a photo and a hand written signed note from Omar Ramsden to Lord Hyndley promising delivery of the completed work in a hand addressed Envelope. Made by Omar Ramsden in London in 1934-1935. Weight - 87oz / 2705g Length - 44.5cm Height - 19.8cm Width - 16.5cm Footnotes This lot was commissioned by Lord Hyndley as a gift for his daughter Millicent Joyce Hyndley (1914-1992) on her 21st birthday. It can be compared to a rose bowl, also by Omar Ramsden, commissioned by Lord Hyndley for his other daughter, Elizabeth. 1st Viscount John Scott Hyndley GBE (1883-1963) was a British businessman and industrialist. During the First World War he was a member of the Coal Controllers Export Advisory Committee and provided valuable assistance in the supply of coal to Italy. After the war he was awarded a knighthood of the Order of the Crown of Italy in gratitude. Hyndley was director of the Bank of England between 1931 and 1945 and became the first chairman of the National Coal Board upon its creation on 1st January 1947. Knighted in 1921, he was created a Baronet in 1927 and Baron in 1931, then Viscount in 1947. In 1953, he was master of the Clothworkers' Company. Provenance: Property of 1st Viscount John Scott Hyndley GBE. Thence by descent to the present owner. Signed/Inscribed: Full English Hallmarks on Bowl & Grill.
