An exceptional sterling silver salt- or serving spoon

An exceptional sterling silver salt- or serving spoon
London 2013 by Miriam Hanid

The gilded bowl subtly engraved with snowflake and ice crystal decoration, the stem and the end with satin-finished surface.
An exceptional, fine and impressive spoon of fantastic quality from one of nowadays leading english artist silversmiths. The decoration has been cut to the surface with a graver by hand.
Several exhibits by Miriam Hanid form part of public and private collections as examples of 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.
