Antique Silver Plate "Gaudy" Salad Serving Set

Antique Silver Plate "Gaudy" Salad Serving Set

$150.00

Found at market in the north of England, we are so pleased to present this majestic Antique Silver Plate "Gaudy" Salad Serving Set. 

The set includes a pair of generously sized oval utensils, one boasting wide triangular tines to assist in serving both green and composed salads from a large bowl with grace and ease. The upper portion of the antique silverplate serving fork and spoon culminates in a decorative beaded leaf and diamond pattern encircling delicately tapered porcelain handles. Hand-painted over a deep cobalt glaze in an unmistakable Gaudy Welsh interpretation of Imari style, a gentle gold flower embellishment caps each handle, while clever ferrules poised along the stems help perch the utensils within, or on the rim of, the bowl.

At a time when Welsh potteries were fierce competitors of those in England, "Gaudy" or "Gaudy Welsh" (a term not coined until the 1970s) helped potteries in Wales compete internationally by carving out a signature style and aesthetic. With a primary palette showcasing a rich cobalt blue underglaze topped by a translucent soft pink luster, shades of greens, and deep russet, the height of the Gaudy Welsh era in Staffordshire took place from 1820-1860, with the style eventually being produced by more than 150 potteries throughout England and Wales.

With a polished refinement created to impress, this lovely salad serving set is sure to become a beloved addition to your serveware collection.


Strictly one-of-a-kind and subject to prior sale. In very good antique condition. Each utensil measures 2.125"W x 12.5"L with handles 1" in diameter.
