English 19th Century Gilt Bronze Collection of Decorative Urns

About

A gilt bronze garniture de fireplace by Elkington and Company Conceived in the Rococo manner, the gilt bronze being excellently cast and planished, the suite consisting of a central two handled baluster form vase, two similar and smaller, and a pair of ewers, marked to the underside with the makers mark, circa 1850 Elkington and Company, formed by the brothers George and Henry, was founded in the 1830s, after perfecting their newly patented method of electro plating in gold and silver, for which their first patent was granted in 1840. They exhibited at the European and British 19th century Great Exhibitions, and were given permission by Queen Victoria in 1868 to copy the collection of Royal Plate. Royal warrants were granted to them by, inter alia, Queen Victoria, Edward VIIth, Queen Alexandra, and George Vth, and various European heads of states. In the early twentieth century, they supplied flatware to the White Star Line, whose ships included the Titanic.
