Catalog Note:
While it is not unusual to see stones used in English jewelry, hollowware and flatware or in American jewelry from the Arts & Crafts movement — it is uncommon to see stones used in hollowware and flatware in the United States at the first part of the 20th century. Lots 35 and 36 reveal the influence of Charles Robert Ashbee and Archibald Knox, with the use of semi-precious stones. In this case, blue aventurine is set in the early porringer and carnelians in the chop set or salad set, both from The Kalo Shop.

Estimate $1,500-2,500

Sold for $2,000
