Sir Dudley Baines Forwood, Baronet British Sterling Silver, Late 19th Century

About

Sir Dudley Baines forwood, baronet.  British sterling silver, late 19th century. Setting for 24-119 Pieces. Features the Forwood family crest. Place setting for (24) . British sterling silver of the highest quality. Sir Dudley was the descendant of a family from Liverpool who made their fortune from wartime speculation and blockade running which inevitably led to politics and a Peerage. As was the norm amongst the British aristocracy, sterling silver with the family crest on every piece, was an absolute necessity for entertaining. Sir Dudley Baine’s son, the 3rd Baronet, devoted himself as the sole equerry to the Duke of Windsor after his abdication in 1937. After meeting the Prince of Wales in 1934 in Austria at the Grand Hotel, Kitzbuhel where the Prince and Wallis Simpson were having a ski holiday, Sir Dudley left his post at the British Legation in Vienna to serve as the Prince’s ADC. Immediately after the Abdication in 1936, the Duke of Windsor retreated to Schloss Enzesfeld in Austria, owned by Baron Eugene de Rothschild where Sir Dudley remained with him and Mrs. Simpson. Sir Dudley had only this to say, “I am a romanticist. My whole desire was to serve my former King in his time of trouble.” During the 19th century, weight was synonymous with "quality" and therefore there was some very heavy silver pieces made during this period.
