Duchess of Sutherland Cripples’ Guild Tazza*
Beautifully decorated Arts & Crafts copper tazza with a richly detailed design of flowers and leaves around the wide rim.
Showing the mark of the Duchess of Sutherland Cripples’ Guild on the underside, we believe it was originally gilded as it’s of the right quality and gilding clearly remains on the underside of the repoussé work where it would incur far less wear.
With or without the gold finish, it is a delightful piece and showcases the skill of its maker, whose name we will never know.
There are one or two dark marks in the central bowl area where it looks to have received a partial clean, but we have not cleaned it further.
32 cm diameter and standing approximately 4.5 cm high. Circa 1910.
