An extraordinary britannia silver Flame Beaker

An extraordinary britannia silver Flame Beaker
London 2013 by Miriam Hanid

The satin-finished body extending to the rim and with embossed flame decoration to all sides which seem to wrench from the spirally shaped bottom. Using this beaker for golden coloured beverage – as for example Whisky or Brandy – the intricate decoration shows an interesting play of light and shadow which seem as true flames.

An exceptional and impressive bowl of a good gauge from one of the nowadays leading english designers of british silver. Several exhibits by Miriam Hanid form part of public and private collections as examples of an outstanding modern silver craftmanship already today. For example the Victoria & Albert Museum, London commissioned her with the Union Centrepiece which forms permanently part of the collection. Her work is recognised with numerous awards and participations in exhibitions and she furthermore can refer to commissioned works for the royal house.
Central characteristics of her works are always an exceptional design paired with a virtuoso technical realisation producing objects for the daily use with a sculptural nature.
