This beautiful hammered silver vase is made in the Arts & Crafts style by renowned Scottish silversmiths, Hamilton & Inches in Edinburgh. Named after the architect who designed the thistle chapel within St Giles Cathedral, this silver vase from the Lorimer collection, is inspired by ancient Scottish church plate.

Key to the design is the pierced sphere or knop which features on each item and links the collection together. The pivotal item in this set is the centrepiece bowl which shows off the pierced knop's stylised fleur de lys to its full effect. It is hand-hammered and has a cast band of decoration, typical of the Arts & Crafts movement, around the foot.
