Rare (1965) Barker Ellis Sterling Silver Cruet Set In Original Velvet Lined Box
Rare (1965) English Barker Ellis Sterling Silver Cruet Set C omplete With Original Cobalt Blue Glass Inserts In Original Velvet & Silk / Satin Lined Presentation Box. Fantastic high quality fully hallmarked sterling silver items. T here are not many such Barker Ellis cruet sets in existence. I have seen plenty of such sets in my time and this set is one of the nicest ones particularly with the red velvet lined box and polished brass hinges. The quality of workmanship is absolutely marvellous. Each item has the Barker Ellis hallmark engraved on the back. Please browse all 12 sets of photographs for size, weight and condition as they are self explanatory. They are in excellent order. These items are not the cheap poor quality imitation or imported ones. They are fantastic items and work of British master silversmiths of the highest order. Condition is excellent although if you are extremely particular and fussy I would say there is very minor bubbling on part of the box and some very minor silver tarnish marks inside the silver cases which Im sure you can polish out. So please browse all the photographs carefully. I assure the quality is breathtaking. In fact I would go as far as to say youd be very hard pressed to find many sets this age in better condition. Barker Ellis items were built to last. Lovely weight and feel. They need to be seen and handled to be fully appreciated as the photographs really do not do them justice. The Barker Ellis Silver Co Ltd was originally established in 1801 and is one of the oldest firms of silversmiths and electroplaters trading in Birmingham UK. The Barker Brothers were also known as Barker Ellis. The business is listed as Barker Brothers in the Post Office Directory of Birmingham from 1871 as Barker Brothers, the company became Barker Brothers Silvermiths Ltd in 1907. The Barker Brothers enjoyed success during this period, and produced silverware from offices in both Birmingham and Chester, with the items crafted in Chester being created under the supervision of Herbert Edward Barker & Frank Ernest Barker themselves. During the 1960s The Barker Brothers Silversmiths merged with Ellis & Co. Also of Birmingham, and the business went through a period of being a subsidiary to Pentos PLC, eventually returning to private ownership in 1984. The company maintained premises in London until the mid-1980s, firmly establishing its reputation for high quality silverware and electroplate goods. The Barker Brothers were known for producing utilitarian silver, flatware and tableware, and their silverware encompassed many popular styles of the era; such as Queen Anne, Art Deco and Nouveau – no doubt influenced by the silversmiths who joined the company as its reputation grew. Their success is certainly due to their ability to adapt and produce a variation of styles, moving with the popular fashion in silverware at the time.
