From the Arts & Crafts era, a charming antique, hand-raised, Britannia silver sugar spoon by The Guild of Handicrafts maker John Sidney Reeve.

Reeve reinterpreted classic patterns from the 1790s and incorporated his own design cues: delicate interwoven rope borders with bead medallions, applied reeded handle mounts with tri-form bead ends, all set against a mottled, hammered finish. This silver sugar spoon is no exception.

The Arts & Crafts movement emerged from a disenchantment with the impersonal, mechanised direction of society in the 19th century and sought to return to a simpler, more fulfilling way of living. The movement was admired for its use of high quality materials and for its emphasis on utility in design.
