A spectacular modern sterling silver `Spindrift´ladle
London 2011 by Rauni Higson
Entirely wrought surface, the polished bowl passing into the hollow stem which terminates into the spreading, coral-like shaped end wich shows a satin finish.
A masterfully accomplished ladle of breathtaking grace and elegance. A unique item from one of Britain´s leading silversmiths which fully can be used as a ladle but furthermore has a highly decorative, near sculptural nature.
