A Pair of Aesthetic Style Antique English Silver Salvers
London, 1881 by Frederick Elkington
Japonisme was all the rage on both sides of the Atlantic, with Tiffany leading the way in the US, and Elkington in the UK.
Each circular with bright-cut rim, finely engraved with a curved geometric band, Japanese fans, bamboo and birds chasing bugs, marked and numbered on back.
