Silver Crumb Tray

Materials: Sterling Silver, Mahogany & Horse Hair Dimensions: 180mm x 140mm x 75mm (Approx.) This commission was made for Mr J.R. Sclater CVO, and was inspired by a previous Victorian wooden crumb tray design he owned. The client wanted to merge the characteristics of the Victorian piece with a more contemporary style of aesthetic, sporting a hand engraving of his family crest at the centre of the design. The brush and handle were hand routered and the brush was bristled by a traditional brush makers in London.
