Description: An interesting Zambian Arts and Crafts sterling silver and malachite milk jug, sugarbowl and sugar spoon, made by the most prestigious jewellery company in Zambia. The milk jug is in the form of a brandy saucepan (perhaps it is!), with straight sides and a sparrow beak spout, and polished malachite handle. The sugar bowl is spherical, with 4 malachite cabochons as decoration, and 3 curved feet and planished body, very similar in style to Liberty Cymric Archibald Knox pieces (he used turquoise). Both are hand hammered, with palnished surface, clearly made by hand, the bowl more noticeable than the jug. The spoon is also lovely, with a malachite pearl in dragons foot finial, rounded handle with a knob for grip, also clearly made by hand. All 3 pieces are hallmarked, firstly with S925 standard mark, and secondly with makers mark KR in Zambian country outline. Klaus Rygaard is a Danish Jeweller and watchmaker, he emigrated to Lusaka, Zambia in 1965, took over a jewellery store, he later established his own goldsmith with 35 employees, which became the leading jewellery company of Zambia. He produced items for Zambian President Kenneth Kaunda, and also made the Pro-Am golf tournament trophy. He sold the business to Jewel of Africa in 2007, it still operates today. Klaus Rygaard returned to Denmark, and today owns Klaus Rygaard Ure & Jewelry, based in Horsholm (www.klaus-rygaard.dk). Malachite is a green copper mineral, today used as a gemstone, and as you can see carves beautifully.
