James Deakin & Sons, Chester, 1906
An exceptionally pretty Edwardian sterling silver bud vase by James Deakin & Sons.
This beautiful little vase features an unusual green glass liner, which is visible through long, slim lower slots and the marvellous quatrefoil shaped apertures created by the lattice work upper section which has four-petal bosses on each intersection. Further ornamentation are the bows and swags which decorate the middle, with stiff-leaf and bead decoration between the slots.
The vase is hallmarked for Chester 1906, made by James Deakin & Sons. The makers stamp of JD over WD (John Deakin & William Deakin) is present. The firm was established at Sidney Works, Matilda Street, Sheffield in 1865.
Condition: Very good. The original glass liner is perfect. There is a tiny ding in the trumpet mouth and the makers part of the hallmark is partially rubbed, but legible.
