A sterling silver Short Basalt Quarried Beaker
Edinburgh 2019 by Hamish Dobbie

The domed body decorated on all sides with a rock-like surface and standing on a flat base. The black Rhodium plated outer surface has been rubbed back to reveal the depth and texture of the chasing. The interior gilded in 18 K gold.
An oustanding and highly imaginative work in exceptional realisation.
