An exceptional sterling silver Butterfly spoon

An exceptional sterling silver Butterfly spoon
London 2016 by Miriam Hanid

The spirally shaped stem terminating into the trapezoidal bowl which shows a subtle engraving of a butterfly to the front.
An unusual spoon in very good manual execution from one of nowadays leading english artist silversmiths. 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.
