An fine Britannia silver Lily Leaf Vase
A fine Britannia silver vase
London 2016 by Miriam Hanid
Of round form in cross section, with narrow neck and extending wavy rim. The body showing fine engraved leaves with a subtle martelé to all sides.
An exceptional and impressive vase of a good gauge from one of nowadays leading english artist silversmiths. 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.
