Art Deco mother of pearl handled fruit dessert set

A good quality canteen of silver plated and mother of pearl handled dessert fruit knives and forks with silver ferrules hallmarked by Walker & Hall dated 1920. This lovely set for 12 guests still retains the original charming handwritten note which accompanied it when it was given, presumably as a Wedding Present, in 1921. In good overall condition with just two knives showing a little wear: one has very small lifting of silver plate and another has an old repair. Nevertheless, all in good working order.
Knives 18.6cm
Forks 14.2cm
Canteen box 30cm x 24cm x 6cm
Walker & Hall was one of the excellent English silversmiths of the 19th Century, which merged with Mappin & Webb. They enjoyed an enviable reputation in the hey-day of 20th Century English silversmithing.

Tania Fawcett is The Vintage Entertainer.  The daughter of two antique and fine art dealers, she grew up to the sound of the auctioneer's gavel and the smell of silver polish.

Escaping to the bright lights of London, she forged a career specialising in international luxury brands. Initially working for HRH The Duke of Edinburgh in his private office, and Couturier, Anouska Hempel, she moved to Garrard The Crown Jewellers. Here she spent as much time as she could talking to the excellent in-house experts, learning about antique jewellery and silver in particular.

At renowned PR agency, Aurelia PR, she heading up the luxury brands division as Deputy Managing Director. Collecting clients appealed to her magpie instincts and over ten years she was lucky enough to work on some of the most interesting and recognised luxury brand names in the world before moving in-house to luxury interior designers and property development managers, Candy & Candy. Here she worked on One Hyde Park and the Candy & Candy brand before moving with her family to the Cotswolds and briefly studying interior design. Happy years passed before the inevitable...

The Vintage Entertainer is the culmination of Tania's passion for fabulous things and she is pleased to offer an eclectic collection of antique and vintage design finds, with particular emphasis on old English silver plate and European 20th Century glass.
