Lot Essay

These salts are based on the designs of Edward Hodges Bailey who worked for the Royal goldsmiths Rundell Bridge and Rundell. The design, although with the addition of oak leaves and acorns, was used for an extensive service of plate produced by Rundell's between 1817 and 1820 for Harriot Mellon, Duchess of St. Albans (c.1775-1837) which descended to her step-granddaughter, Angela Burdett-Coutts and was sold as Old English Silver Plate Being the Remaining Portion of the Coutts Heirlooms, Christie's, London, 20 March 1920.
