Brittannia Silver Miniature Fish Eagle - Patrick Mavros Style

In addition to being a rare Leeds College of Art piece of silver, the use of the large optional coronation hallmark as decoration is also unusual. Du...

$ 740.00

A fabulous set of six antique sterling silver goblets, perfectly preserved in their original box.
