A fine sterling silver Gold Vein Quarried Beaker

A sterling silver Gold Vein Quarried Beaker
Edinburgh 2018 by Hamish Dobbie

Standing on a strongly concave base with rock-like accentuating creases and depressions. The depressions streaked with veining. The wall completely matted, the folds accentuated by thin, shiny ridges. The veins and the interior gilded with 18 K gold.
Exceptional and imaginative beaker in excellent realisation.
