A SELECTION OF SILVER BY CHARLES FOX
Charles Fox has been described by Arthur Grimwade as being "one of the last individualist plateworkers before the debacle of Victorian mass production." Fox entered his first mark with Goldsmiths' Hall as a plateworker in 1822. His work, always of high quality, derives its inspiration from Dutch 18th century silver (see lots 21 and 24) and from nature. It is the naturalistic silver, such as the silver-gilt claret jug decorated with bull rushes and lily pads (lot 26), that may be Charles Fox's greatest contribution to the silver craft. Later in the 19th century two of Charles Fox's sons, Charles Thomas and George, continued the tradition of quality work, supplying much silver for the retailers Lambert and Rawlings.
