  • TO TREASURE FOR EVER

  • Wood – can be washed with hot soapy water. Re apply a mineral oil once in a while to prevent drying out and cracking.
    Oxidised silver – Any piece of oxidised silver will be prone to wear, as it is a surface patina. However this can add to the surface and represent your relationship with the object. Alternatively the oxidised finish can be re-applied if you wish. Please contact us if you wish to arrange for an item to be re-oxidised. For general day-to-day care the colour can be maintained by using Renaissance wax, which should be gently applied with a soft cloth and any residue carefully polished off. Please be sure only to use a soft cloth that is not impregnated with any kind of jewellery cleaning substance as this will further remove the oxidisation.
Why we love this product

An Enchanting Hand Crafted Britannia Silver Decorative Sculpture

This hand raised Britannia silver bowl has a gorgeous repurposed brass foot. It is created from brass olives, which are engineered parts used in plumbing. This repurposing of metal is prominent feature in Melissa Montague's work as she aims to see the beauty in everyday items. The shovel is created from sterling silver tube, sheet and wire. Both have an oxidised finish and are set on an American rock maple wood base.

The piece takes inspiration from old farming tools as Melissa's grandfather was a farmer and keen metal detectorist and the work of 19th century designer Christopher Dresser.
